Man with samurai sword may face additional charges
A swordsmanship instructor and tattoo artist accused of having a samurai sword without lawful purpose may face additional charges, a court heard on Tuesday.
Chua Teck Choon also known as Peter, 39, was back in court after his remand at the Institute of Mental Health for psychiatric evaluation.
He has been charged with having the offensive weapon at City Hall MRT station at 12.46pm on Dec 16.
Chua, who has long curly dyed hair, caused a stir when he boarded an MRT train wielding a samurai sword that day. He was then dressed partly like a Japanese martial art exponent. He was arrested eventually near Jalan Pisang off North Bridge Road.
