5 boys nabbed for alleged robbery

Five boys between 11 and 16 years old have been arrested for allegedly robbing several young victims.

They were picked up at Orchard Link within eight hours of a 14-year-old student reporting to the cops that he was assaulted and robbed by a group of boys at 7:48am on Tuesday.

With the description of the suspects provided by the victim and images retrieved from police cameras, officers were able to locate and arrest the boys, said the police yesterday.

Preliminary investigations indicate that the suspects are also believed to be involved in two other similar cases reported at Jalan Membina on Monday and Tuesday.
