A 38-year-old man was found dead with multiple wounds at Punggol Field on Saturday. The man was sent to Sengkang General Hospital after police received a call for assistance at around 11 pm on Sunday.
Mr Leong who lives near the scene of the incident heard the cry for help while having a late-night snack in his living room. "At first it didn't occur to me that it was coming from downstairs at the park connector. So I hesitated for a while, and then I heard a second cry for help," he said. When he saw from his window, a man was kneeling, then started walking towards the back of the bus stop and collapsed on a grass patch.
Mr Leong who works as cabin crew at airlines called for an ambulance, went down for help and asked the man if he was attacked and the man said yes. The man looked like he was going for a jog as he was wearing a football jersey and jogging shoes, he added. Leong noticed a man having a deep cut on the right side of his armpit when the ambulance arrived.
