A student was given two years' probation yesterday for rioting.
Isaac Ang Shi Ming, 17, was part of an unlawful assembly that ganged up on Anand Ravindran on Dec 1 last year at around 3.45pm.
This took place at Block 122, Potong Pasir Avenue 1.
The court heard that a member of Ang's group, a 15-year-old boy, used a knife to stab Anand, 17, twice on his back.
The teenager, who cannot be named due to his age, will be back in the Juvenile Court on May 9.
Anand managed to get up after he was stabbed and ran to a nearby clinic for help.
He was later sent to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
Anand recovered quickly and was transferred from a high-dependency ward to a general ward on Dec 4.
Met with friends
On the day of the stabbing, Anand had met one of his friends, Don Tan Wen Bin, 17, at Block 148, Potong Pasir Avenue 1.
The teenagers were then confronted by Ang and two of his friends, Lim Ming Yi and Terence Chue Wei Teck, both 17.
Lim accused Don of staring at him and the two groups later decided to have a fight.
A member of Ang's group called the 15-year-old boy for help and he agreed to go there after asking three friends to join him.
They are Liong Hong Ting and Junaide Terng Hui Min, both 17, and Tabitha Wong Jie Jing, 16.
The court heard that Ang and four members of his group attacked Anand until he fell to the ground.
The court also heard that the 15-year-old boy then took out a knife and stabbed him.
For rioting, Ang could have been jailed up to seven years and caned.
