KOTA KINABALU: Two Irish students, who were on a month-long medical practical at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital here, ended up having to be treated for wounds following a fight outside a pub.
The students, both 23, got into the fight with four men, including a bouncer from the pub.
Kota Kinabalu acting police chief Supt M. Chandra said one of the students told police he was trying to help his friend fight off the men when he was also beaten up.
“The incident is believed to have been triggered by provocation,” he said, declining to reveal details.
A policeman on patrol nearby stumbled upon the students, who were being helped by passers-by, at about 3.30am on Thursday.
Two suspects — the 35-year-old bouncer and a 29-year-old foreigner — were arrested at the pub at about 11.40pm the same day.
