SINGAPORE - Two secondary school students have been arrested for stabbing a youth with a knife on Saturday in Potong Pasir.

The two 16-year-old boys supposedly got into a dispute with the victim, a 17-year-old boy, at Block 142 Potong Pasir Avenue 1.

Lianhe Wanbao reported that one of the students shouted that he was going to get a knife and later reappeared with one. He apparently chased the victim, then stabbed him in the chest.

The Straits Times understands that a friend of the victim who was at the scene detained the suspects before the police arrived.
