Mystery surrounds bloody incident at Parkway Parade

A Chinese man in his 40s was found lying on the floor in a pool of blood in a restaurant at Parkway Parade mall on Tuesday night, reported The New Paper.

A spokesperson for the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) told Yahoo! Singapore the man suffered wounds to the neck and wrist.

Police are investigating it as a case of attempted suicide, although nothing has been confirmed.

When contacted by Yahoo! Singapore, staff at Kartini Indonesian Restaurant only acknowledged that the incident happened at dinner time on Tuesday. The restaurant is operating as per normal today.

While most sales assistants working at nearby stores were unaware of the commotion at the restaurant due to the festive crowd, some passers-by took to Twitter to share their tales.

Said Twitter user Catherine Ling, “Bloodied crime scene. I saw man carried out on stretcher. Homicide at Kartini Indonesian Restaurant?”

 “I think he was still alive,” Ling added later, in response to one of her followers’ queries. “Think they tried to stem the bleeding before hoisting him on the stretcher.”

The SCDF received a call at 6:41pm requesting for assistance at Parkway Parade. An ambulance reached the mall within nine minutes.

The man, who was conscious, was later taken to Changi General Hospital.
