A bank executive was jailed for six months on Monday for using a pair of scissors to stab his girlfriend who had decided to call off their relationship.

Tan Zu Yi, 22, pleaded guilty to causing hurt to Ms Yaw Boon Xing, 22, by repeatedly stabbing her at a multi-purpose hall near Block 140, Pasir Ris Street 11 on Oct 26 last year.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Tang Shangjun said Tan and the victim, both Malaysians, had been in a relationship for about three years and eight months.

When Ms Yaw moved to Singapore after she found a job in a local bank, Tan would periodically travel here to meet her.
