WATCH: Argument over chips turns into minimart brawl
An argument over a bag of chips turned into an ugly brawl on Sunday evening in an iEcon minimart at block 75D Redhill Road.
The incident – which happened around 6pm – resulted in two men, aged 32 and 22, being taken to Alexandra Hospital with injuries to their heads and bodies.
It is believed that a 12-year-old boy wanted to pay for a bag of chips separately from other items when the 32-year-old shopkeeper shouted at him.
The boy's 22-year-old brother then came and had an argument with the shopkeeper which turned violent.
A video of the incident shows the two men clashing in the aisle of the minimart, with the sound of glass breaking on the ground around them.
The shopkeeper allegedly pinned the 22-year-old on the ground until police arrived.
Both men were arrested for affray.
