Brothers, 10 and 11, arrested for throwing items from flat

SINGAPORE - Two boys, aged 10 and 11, have been arrested for allegedly throwing a small speaker and a vehicle battery out of their Dover Road flat on Tuesday.

Police were alerted by a member of the public when a vehicle battery was thrown from a flat at Blk 4 Dover Road.

The complainant and his friends were sitting at the nearby pavilion when the vehicle battery landed near them. After a search for the culprit, the group of friends spotted the 10-year-old boy at the common corridor. The boy was later arrested.

Police believe that the boy and his 11 year old brother had also thrown a small speaker from their flat earlier that day.

On Tuesday, a 15-year-old male was also arrested for suspected involvement in a series of rash acts in which several items were thrown from a Eunos flat.

Offenders convicted of carrying out a rash act can be jailed up to six months, fined up to $2,500, or both.

Commander of Clementi Police Division, Deputy Assistant Commissioner of Police (DAC) Melvin Yong said that the police take a stern view of inconsiderate acts that endanger the lives of others.

"Such irresponsible acts cannot be viewed as simple acts of mischief as the vehicle battery could have seriously injured or killed someone. Police will not hesitate to take firm action against the offenders," he added.
