At about 8:00 am on January 6, 1971, several burglars tried to break into the unit on the first floor of No. 34 Lockhart Road. South Asian resident Lawrence Singh heard someone prying at the door with a hard object and shouted to stop. The thieves fled immediately. Singh and his son followed downstairs and fought with the thief at the gate of the building. During the conflict, Singh was stabbed three times and was seriously injured, but he continued to chase the thieves along Lockhart Road to Arsenal Street where he fell at the gas station. A policewoman joined in the chase, but the thieves succeeded to run away. The injured was sent to the hospital for treatment.
