80-year-old jailed in Singapore for fight over girlfriend

A jealous 80-year-old church caretaker in Singapore was today jailed for a day and fined for a brawl with his girlfriend's landlord inside the church.

Lim Song Chong, who suspected his girlfriend was in a relationship with her 65-year-old landlord Cheong Yee Mun, threw a kitchen knife at him in a brawl on holy ground.

He hurled the 20 cm-long knife at Cheong, who escaped being hit by hiding behind a pillar at the Glad Tidings Church.

Lim also threw an umbrella, a pocket knife and kitchen scissors at the landlord, who retaliated by chucking a fire extinguisher at his "very, very frail" rival, The Straits Times reported.

None of the projectiles hit their intended targets and police arrived to separate the two Singapore seniors.

Lim was fined 3,000 dollars and jailed for a day after he admitted committing criminal intimidation by chasing Cheong with the knife and performing a rash act by throwing it at him.
