Cops ID Suspect in Fatal Stabbing at Division Street Gambling Den
The man wanted in connection with the grisly stabbing death in a Division Street gambling den has been identified.
Cops identified Shin Bin Weng, 55, as the suspect in the death of 58-year-old Qi Rui Weng, who died on Monday after he was stabbed with a large kitchen knife following a feud inside the social club at 125 Division Street, near Orchard.
(There is no relation between the men.)
The two had reportedly been fighting inside the social club when the would-be attacker was escorted from the premises. He then nabbed two large kitchen knives from the neighboring restaurant supply store before returning through a door connecting both buildings.
The victim was later discovered in a bathroom with a large knife still plunged in his torso, and a smaller blade by his chair, according to published reports.
This notorious hangout was previously in the news last August when a 26-year-old woman was found dead in the back of a taxi following a night out.
