Drunk Singapore Man Attacked Neighbor’s Wife With Samurai Sword
Khushwant Singh – Straits Times
Armed with a samurai sword and fueled by a generous amount of alcohol, Feizal Abu Bakar went to confront a neighbor he suspected of reporting him for drug use.
But the man Feizal was seeking was not in, and the neighbor’s wife bore the brunt of the sword wielding man’s anger. Wirdawati Che Muning, 36, suffered cuts and abrasions on her head, back and limbs.
In a district court on Monday, Feizal admitted to assaulting hurting the housewife with the weapon. The 28-year-old delivery man also pleaded guilty to assaulting his own wife. He will be sentenced on July 9 as he wanted time to prepare arguments for a lighter sentence.
In hearing a recount of the incident, the district court heard that a resident called the police after hearing screams, and seeing Feizal, sword in hand, standing over his bleeding victim on Jan. 7 on the first-storey corridor of a block of flats in Boon Lay Drive.
Police seized three other ceremonial samurai swords exhibited in Feizal’s living room.
Investigations showed that Feizal’s blood-alcohol level was 137 milligrams — the legal limit for driving is 80 milligrams.
Three days earlier, Feizal reportedly slapped, punched and kicked his wife, a 34-year-old Indonesian national who was also pregnant at the time.
Feizal’s wife obtained a personal protection order last November.
