AsiaOne

SINGAPORE - Five 17-year old youths have been arrested by the police for suspected involvement in the vandalism case that occurred on the roof facade of Blk 85A Lorong 4 Toa Payoh.

On May 7, crude slogans against the People's Action Party were spotted by contributors to citizen journalism website Stomp on the external wall of Block 85 Toa Payoh.

The name 'Mike Cool' was also spotted sprayed on the block - likely the sign-off name of the culprit.

According to a police statement, a police report was subsequently made on May 7 at 6.47am, and officers from the Criminal Investigation Department and Tanglin Police Division were involved in the investigations.

An operation was mounted on May 9 which led to the arrest of the five suspects.

The five suspects will be charged in Court on 10 May 2014 for the offence of Vandalism with Common Intention.

This offence carries a punishment of imprisonment of up to three years or fine up to S$2,000, and shall also, subject to the Criminal Procedure Code 2010, be punished with at least three strokes of the cane.
