A 26-year-old hotel employee in Geylang, Singapore, was attacked with a bronze lion on 26 January after he denied a room to two men who were carrying a drunk woman
"I was worried that something would happen to the unconscious woman, so I lied to them that there were no available rooms," the employee revealed
According to China Press, one of the men began yelling at the hotel employee before attacking him with a bronze lion over the counter.
He was left with a swollen eye, and a 2cm-long scar near his eyebrow.
"The bronze lion was about 10cm tall, and none of my colleagues were at the scene," the 26-year-old said.
"I called my manager after they left, and he lodged a police report on my behalf," he added.
The 58-year-old attacker has since been charged with assault using a dangerous weapon
China Press reported that he is currently out on a SGD8,000 (approximately RM24,000) bail.
The 58-year-old faces up to seven years in jail, along with a fine and strokes of the cane upon conviction.
