Blood Trail Leading Through Downtown East and E-Hub (Pictures)

BradleyLife in Singapore, Thoughts9 Comments

My wife and I were in Downtown East tonight when we noticed this trail of blood leading past the entrance to Sakura.  At first, I thought that perhaps some poor girl was having an unfortunate night, but then I realized it was way too much blood for that.  The trail led to the door going out of the mall.  In the other direction, it headed down the stairs into the lower level of the mall.

As I started taking pictures, three police officers walked by, following the blood trail out the door.  I went the other way, following it further into the mall.

This is the handrail on the steps that go down from the entrance of Sakura into the mall.  You can see blood splashed on the wall and on the metal railing.

This is the post on the wall by the ATMs, just past the Indian restaurant towards the sliding glass door where the long escalators are that go to the 2nd level of E-Hub.

These are pictures of the stairs that lead up to the 2nd floor of E-Hub, between the escalators.

At this point I ran into a guy that was wearing a mall uniform who was taking pictures of the blood trail. I asked him what had happened.  He said there was an incident outside the mall.  He also kept saying “8 plus” “8 plus”.  I couldn’t quite understand him, but what I’m thinking is that 8 kids attacked a 9th kid, who fled into the mall for safety after sustaining heavy wounds.  The photos only tell a bit of the story.  There was a LOT of blood on the ground and walls the whole way along.  I wonder, can this much blood come from a broken nose, or is it a knife wound?

These three photos are from the landing at the top of the escalators, where you enter the E-Hub mall.

This is inside, in the “alley” area where the walkway skirts the children’s playground.

This is right in front of the virtual reality arcade game that sits under the escalator that goes to the movie house and arcade on the third floor.

This was the last bit of blood we saw.  I wonder if this was another incident of gang violence, like the gang fight masked as a lion dance reported in the news, or if it was “schoolyard” bullying taken to an extreme.

…blocking the top of the escalator, not allowing passengers to alight from the train first, talking too loudly on mobile phones on the train or bus….

Well, social-strata gangs are bad at the highest level since its those good-for-nothings but who's families are “connected” who would do the most damage and act like they're above the law. As for Singaporeans shooting one another, I can also see it happening at foodcourts over taken seats, at schools when bad results are given, at coffeeshops over staring incidents, the list goes on and on 😛

I sometimes get the impression that gangs in Singapore have evolved into 'social strata' gangs. Which one you're in depends on how much money you have, and what kind of clothes you wear. The 'fights' take place mostly online where people bash each other. Anyhow, I agree that Singapore's not ready to have a concealed-carry license. From what I know, it's not even legal to have a gun in your home at all. Singaporeans would likely go nuts and start shooting each other over stupid shit, like hanging panties on Chinese New Year's, or for two people sharing a seat… Read more »

Its probably a bunch of teenage hooligans fighting, or mistaken identity, or a staring incident kinda thingie. Lots of that rubbish going on, especially if the arcade's involved. I don't think its a mafia/gang/triad hit, those are almost non-existent here. Kinda makes me somewhat supportive of open-carry policies (The whole Starbucks fad is kinda sending a message too far though!), gawd knows, my cousin in TX is in full support of it! Would be a zoo if they allowed it it here though, too many idiots and hotheads on this island who won't be able to handle their firearms with… Read more »
