SINGAPORE — The police are looking into a brawl that broke out outside Katong Square that was captured in a video posted online. 

The video was posted by socio-political website The Independent Singapore on Facebook on Tuesday (April 5) morning, and has been viewed 11,000 times in seven hours. 

The police told TODAY in an email response on Tuesday that a report had been made.

In the video, titled "Fight breaks out beside Katong Square, man seen retrieving weapon from car", 10 people can be seen gathered on the road and engaging in a fight.

Two young women, dressed in black, are seen trying to break up the fight. 

A man, dressed in a black shirt and sweatpants, can then be seen retrieving a small shiny object, which looked like a switchblade, from a black vehicle, while another man dressed in a white shirt runs across the road waving his arms and trying to break up the fight. 

One man in the crowd is seen grabbing the man in the white shirt and putting him in a chokehold, causing him to lose his balance and fall onto the road.

The man is dragged off the road and onto the sidewalk, where he tries getting back onto his feet and stumbling. 

Towards the end of the video, the man in black is seen staring at the person taking the video and yelling at him, using aggressive hand gestures. The video has no sound. 

It is not clear what was the cause of the fight or if all the parties knew each other.
