10 arrested over Bugis Village brawl

Ten people were arrested last week for their involvement in a brawl at Bugis Village.

A four-minute video of the fight was posted on the Facebook page of SG HardTruth Community on Monday. It shows a group of people shouting as what looked like a scuffle broke out.

The police yesterday told The Straits Times they received a call at 10.22pm on June 7 for assistance at 2, New Bugis Street.

Nine people were arrested for unlawful assembly. Another man was subsequently arrested in relation to the case.

According to Shin Min Daily News yesterday, the dispute involved two pastry shops in the area.

An employee from one of the shops told Shin Min that last Tuesday's fight was sparked off by a person who stood in front of the shop and told customers that its bread was "fake". She said the brawl was due to a "miscommunication on both sides".

A female staff member of the other shop claimed that three people carrying beer bottles were involved in the fight, adding that five of her family members suffered minor injuries.
