A sales executive who hit a nightclub patron on his face with a plastic decanter was jailed for six weeks.
Desmond Koh Wee Boon, 29, had admitted to causing hurt to assistant operations manager Tan Soon Tiang, 37, at Mandopop club, Shanghai Dolly, at Clarke Quay at about 2am on March 31.
The decanter broke into pieces and permanently disfigured the victim’s nose, the court heard.
Investigation showed that Tan and three others, including two women, were at the nightclub for drinks. Koh and his group of friends stood nearby at another table. When Tan left the table, Koh took the opportunity to chat up the two women.
One of them, Lim Siew Ping, then pulled Tan over and said he was her boyfriend to get Koh to stop making advances on them.
Koh then picked up a plastic decanter and hit the victim on the face. The court heard that the victim had refused Koh’s offer of compensation and had to undergo nose surgery. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
