SINGAPORE - A 58-year-old man allegedly attacked two people with a knife at Block 510A Yishun Street 51 on Thursday night (June 23).

In a statement on Friday, the police said they were alerted to a case of assault at 8.30pm on Thursday involving two victims - a man, 62, and a woman, 41.

The police said: "The attack purportedly arose from a prior dispute between both men who are known to each other."

The suspect was arrested for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous means and suspected drug-related offences, said the police.

The police said the victims were conscious when taken to hospital.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said on Friday it took two people to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital after receiving a call for help at around 8.50pm on Thursday.

In a widely circulated video online, at least four police vehicles are parked along the road near a block of flats.

The video's caption stated there had been a slashing incident at the block.

Investigations are ongoing.

The incident is the latest following several weapon attacks this year.

And on April 14, a man, 46, was arrested after allegedly hacking his wife with a chopper in Beach Road.
