SINGAPORE - Fugitive Daryl Tay Kai Long was arrested on Monday (Oct 3) for allegedly trying to set a nightclub on fire in September.

Tay, 26, was the fifth suspect in an alleged attack at a club in St James Power Station.

Police investigations showed that a group of men had hurled beer bottles filled with petrol at the main entrance of a club named Bounce.

The other four men - Toh Wen Yi and Bryan Ho Chang Rong, both 26, and Eugene Lim Huang Shen and Cephas Ho Jin An, both 23 - were nabbed within days of the incident and each charged with one count of mischief by fire.

 

The police believe the attack to be "an act of revenge arising from a previous dispute between one of the suspects and the staff of one of the entertainment outlets at St James Power Station".

Tay will be charged with the same crime on Wednesday. He faces a fine and up to seven years in jail.
