A migrant worker allegedly slit his throat on Sunday morning at a dormitory in Sungei Kadut. The 36-year-old was seen lying bloodied at a staircase landing in the dorm.
A police spokesman said they were alerted to the incident at Block 53 Sungei Kadut Loop at about 7.30am and apprehended the man under the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) Act.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) said it was aware of the incident and that the man was attended to quickly.
He said: “The dormitory operator and Fast Team (Forward Assurance and Support Team) on site reacted quickly and treated his injuries. He is now in a safe and stable condition.”
Further checks by MOM found that he did not have salary arrears and there were no indications he was in distress prior to the incident.
His food and accommodation were also provided for.
