2 men hurt in a fight over 14-year-old girl
A FIGHT on Sunday night between two teenagers, aged 18 and 19, over a 14-year-old girl resulted in the 19-year-old and a passer-by being sent to hospital.
The incident happened at about 6pm at the badminton court at Block 115, Teck Whye Lane, Chinese newspaper Shin Min Daily News reported yesterday.
The altercation was between Jiang Zexing, 18, and Zhang Jinwei, 19, with Mr Jiang aided by his father.
Ms Huang, Mr Jiang's ex-girlfriend, 19, told Shin Min that she got pregnant after being with him for half a year.
She added that Mr Jiang said he would "take responsibility" for the child, but he allegedly backed out on his promise and cheated on her with a 14-year-old when she was five months pregnant.
The 14-year-old was already attached to Mr Zhang, Ms Huang said, who found out that the girl had spent a night at Mr Jiang's place, and arranged to meet the latter for a confrontation.
They met at the badminton court, with Mr Jiang taking his father along, who allegedly took with him a bamboo pole.
A fight ensued, and a resident who saw it called the police. Blood spatters could be seen on the court afterwards.
Mr Zhang was injured and sent to the hospital, along with a passer-by, Yang Ziyi, who had stepped forward to stop the fight.
Mr Yang, a tattoo artist, 28, told Shin Min that he has been discharged.
"I went up to stop them. The dad shouted at me: 'So many tattoos!' before hitting me about three times with a bamboo pole. I felt faint and my nose kept bleeding," said Mr Yang. He added that he was also injured on his forehead and elbows.
He said he was "innocent" and intends to sue.
Mr Zhang, a student, told Shin Min that his vision is now blurry, after his left eye was fractured, requiring eight stitches.
"I was dating the 14-year-old girl, she shouldn't have spent the night at another guy's house. I wanted only to be clear about the situation, but when I met the other guy he kept provoking me and even threw punches at my face," said Mr Zhang.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force told My Paper yesterday that a 19-year-old man and another in his 20s were sent by ambulance to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.
The police told My Paper that an 18-year-old man was arrested in relation to a case of voluntarily causing grievous hurt.
Investigations are ongoing.
