A 20-second video showing two women, thought to be migrant workers, fighting in public near a Singapore MRT station on Sunday has gone viral. The women were allegedly fighting over a man.

The video appeared on Facebook on February 17, and clearly showed two women brawling, surrounded by friends who were trying to separate them, The Lianhe Wanbao (Singapore) reported.

The video came to an end when one of the fighters’ friends saw a man filming, and signaled him to stop. By that time the fight had attracted a crowd of more than a dozen passers-by.

According to one of the comments left on Facebook, the two women were quarreling over a man whom they both considered as their boyfriend.

Fighting in public in Singapore, it is a violation under section 267A of the Penal Code, and offenders could be sentenced to up to one year in jail or a fine up to S$5,000 (US$3,680), or both.
