Yishun Ring Rd: Father Splashes Acid On Son's Face

Peh Boon Keng wanted to visit his estranged wife to discuss matters, but upon reaching his destination, he headed straight for the kitchen and took out a bottle of cleaning solution. The part-time cleaner then poured some into a plastic Starbucks cup and took it to the bedroom of his 20-year-old son. He then splashed the corrosive substance on his face before leaving the flat.

The solution resulted in burns around his eyes and lips. Miraculously, he was discharged a few days later with no permanent scars. The 53-year-old later claimed that his son was "moving towards him, which he interpreted as an attack", but was eventually sentenced to seven months' jail.
