Assault believed to have happened after a dispute

The victim and the teenagers involved reportedly had a verbal disagreement, resulting in conflict with one person attacking the victim with a knife.

One resident, who wished to remain anonymous, told Shin Min that she faintly heard noises of a quarrel at that time but did not pay too much attention as she was sleeping and believed it were just some kids playing around.

Another resident, Zheng, also said he heard rumours about a fight that had broken out, with one being slashed while the rest pursued him to the roof of the carpark and threatened to push him off the roof.
