Man jailed for chopper attack
A FACTORY worker who returned home ill from a night shift to find his wife in bed with one of his colleagues was yesterday jailed for two months for attacking the man with two choppers.
Zhuang Minhai, 29, got back to the rented room which he shared with his wife, Ms Lin Liyun, also 29, to find her having sex with Mr Zhang Zhiyang. All three worked at the same factory.
Zhuang punched his 22-year-old love rival in the back several times. He ordered Mr Zhang to leave but he refused.
The furious husband went to the kitchen and grabbed two choppers before lashing out at Mr Zhang. The victim managed to avoid the first two swings of the blades but was slashed by the third.
The Chinese couple's landlady called the police over the commotion in Boon Lay Drive at around 8.30pm on April 28.
Mr Zhang, one of whose arms was broken in the attack, needed surgery on an 8cm-long cut on the same arm at the National University Hospital.
