Just because it says "Punggol", it does not necessarily mean it happened in "Punggol".

A video of a teen being severely beaten by a group of men at a coffee shop circulated last week with the word "Punggol' superimposed on the video, which led many in Singapore to believe the incident took place in Punggol.

But it actually happened in Johor Bahru.

On Nov 3, the South Johor Bahru District police chief released a statement that the police received a call about fighting at Jalan Datuk Abdullah Tahir on Nov 2 at 5.20am.

A 19-year-old man was attacked with chairs, tables and cooking utensils, said police. A gun was reportedly pointed at him.

The teen had injuries on his nose, right eyebrow, hands, knee and the back of his head. He was treated as an outpatient at Hospital Sultanah Aminah.

Six men, aged 19 to 52, were arrested for their suspected involvement.

Police said the teen had befriended a woman in her 20s on Instagram and arranged to have drinks with her. The woman was the girlfriend of one of the suspects.

The teen was approached by four men who asked how he knew the woman. He tried to run but was chased by six more men and beaten up by all 10 of them.

In one of the videos, the teen got up from the ground after the beating and blood can be seen on his face.

Police are actively tracking down the remaining suspects.
