Man slashes wife with cleaver, assaults and spits on workers at SGH and IMH
He also spat at hospital workers and made racist and religiously charged remarks at a nurse, who was taking his vital signs while he was warded at Singapore General Hospital (SGH).
The 26-year-old Singaporean was jailed for one year, seven months and two weeks on Monday (June 20). This was backdated to June last year when he was remanded.
He then woke up his wife in bed by hugging her. When she told him that he reeked of alcohol and he should not disturb her, he sat on the lower part of her body and bit her shoulder, refusing to release her.
