Three men have been arrested in relation to a case of affray, after a fight broke out at the carpark of Chinatown Point mall earlier this month, the police said yesterday.

A video of the brawl published by citizen journalism site Stomp on Tuesday has gone viral but it remains unclear what sparked the incident.

It shows a silver van reversing into a parking space while a man directs the driver.

The driver of a blue MPV that has stopped in front of the silver van, is shown stepping out of his vehicle and approaching the van.

He then reaches into the van's window and throws something on the ground before the man directing the driver punches him. They continue fighting before passers-by break up the brawl.

Police told The Straits Times yesterday that the incident happened at 5.29pm on Feb 9.

"Three men aged between 25 and 51 were arrested in relation to the case," said a police spokesman. Police investigations are ongoing.

The Straits Times understands that two men aged 25 and 32 were from the silver van, while the 51-year-old man was the driver of the blue vehicle.
