The slasher is believed to be a young man, around the age of 18.
It’s suspected that the slashing took place after a fight between both men, believed to be friends, turned bloody.
An eyewitness says there was a deep cut on his arm which exposed bone.
The victim’s last finger was nearly chopped off, left hanging by the skin.
Another eyewitness said that following the attack, the slasher had waved a knife at two youths and shouted that he had just slashed someone and told them to stay away from the hawker centre
The eyewitness described the slasher as a slim-built young man.
Police have classified the case as “voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons”.
