In an ironic turn of events, a 36-year-old ex-bouncer flew into rage and battered a 31-year-old man with a 30cm metal rod after failing to mitigate a fight between the man and his twin.
The incident happened on Sep 2, 2015 outside Club Paragon 2, a nightlife venue at Concorde Hotel, reports Lianhe Wanbao.
The man and his twin brother allegedly got into a dispute over a parking incident, prompting the accused to step forth and mitigate the situation between the two.
When the one of the twins told him to go away, he flew into a rage, drew a metal rod and swung it at his head.
The victim attempted to stop the assault but instead of stopping, the accused smashed his face with the rod, causing him to fall to the ground, bleeding.
The accused continued raining blows on the victim’s face before fleeing.
The victim suffered a 5cm laceration on his forehead, as well as a swollen nose and multiple bone fractures.
The accused faces six charges in total --- three for assault with a dangerous weapon, two charges for causing harm with intention and one for the possession of a dangerous weapon --- and is being prosecuted for three of them.
The ex-bouncer is also accused of slashing the manager of a bar at Tanglin Road on Dec 29, 2015 at 4.30am.
The accused reportedly severed the bar manager's left pinky and ring finger in the attack.
Taking into the consideration his past offences, the judge sentenced him to a 15-month jail sentence, and the accused will begin serving his sentence on Mar 15, 2017.
