Suspect surrendered himself after video of incident went viral
The suspect returned to Roxy Square on Friday afternoon (Apr 5) to surrender himself.

Lim was forced to undergo a CT scan and an x-ray examination after the ordeal.
Lim’s employer, security firm Regal Security, is planning to take legal action against the man who hit him. General manager K. Bhaskaran told ST that the company will be covering Lim’s medical and legal costs.
Background of incident
Lim told The Straits Times that the incident happened shortly after midnight.
The suspect had requested to speak to the supervisor at the time because he was trying to leave the building but could not find an exit.
Lim, who was on duty, tried to explain that there were several other exits but the suspect ignored him and started behaving in a provocative manner.
Later in the video, the man can be seen sucker-punching Lim, flooring him.
According to Lim, the man then tried to hit his colleague who was videoing the incident, but missed. He then fled as police was called.
