A 23-year-old man was slashed at Yishun Ring Road on Wednesday evening.
Police said three suspects - aged 13, 15 and 18 - have been arrested in connection with the incident.
The incident occurred at the void deck of Block 362, Yishun Ring Road.
Police said the slashing resulted when the victim accused the suspects of allegedly stealing his mobile phone.
The victim was apparently attacked by two youths who, according to witnesses, were on a motorcycle.
The victim fled the scene, leaving a trail of blood along the way till the nearby Block 343 at Yishun Ave 11.

There, he sought help from a resident on the second floor.
Goh Gerard Kelvin said: "So he came up all the way here...I controlled his blood pressure...I (asked him what happened), and he said 'somebody chopped my hand'."
Other residents said the victim was not alone.

Iskandar Zulqarnain said: "When I come down, I saw a lot of teenagers and one guy (was covered with) blood. I was shocked."
Police said they received a call about the incident at 5.50pm.
The victim had injuries to his head and arms, and was taken to the Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
The case has been classified under Section 324 of the Penal Code, that is voluntarily causing hurt by a dangerous weapon or means.

Unk Dicko's Comments:
Another slashing with deadly weapons case. It can happen anywhere at any time so long as you have such 'macho-bravo hot air balloons' usually with gang links, out to cause trouble. There are still many of such out there, with little education ( not that education was not available to them..they prefer to be educated on the streets), no proper family or parental control, no motivation, low self-esteem etc.. .

Maybe we should use to wayside trees...

Like they used to in the Old West...

Japan has now re-started hanging for those sentenced to death. Even youths are not spared..since they displayed so much brutality and evil intent in carrying out their heinous crimes.
We as a people, as a state, as a nation NEED to think more about the poor victims of crime rather than be wishy-washy over those who ended their innocent lives.
Killers,murderers, rapists and others committing serious crimes should NEVER, EVER BE let off lightly.
We must think of the poor victims first. Those supporters of 'human rights' should ask the killers,rapists and murderers what God-given RIGHT had they specially received to go out and commit serious crimes and take away precious and sacred lives.
They 'fight' for those on death rows. Who fight for the DEAD VICTIMS who did no harm and being dead cannot ask for justice for themselves???
The old law of the wild west ensured fast justice for crimes done.

Yes you are right, young or old, murderers must not get away.
