The police have arrested four youths aged between 16 and 18 for their suspected involvement in a case of rash act and public nuisance at Punggol MRT station and bus interchange.

In a SnapChat video that circulated on social media last week, a man was seen throwing an oBike into a canal and riding an ofo bicycle in the train station and bus interchange.

Officers from the Ang Mo Kio Police Division established the suspects' identities and arrested them along Ang Mo Kio Ave 9 on Monday (June 19).

The police said that investigations are ongoing.

If found guilty of committing Rash Act, the suspects may be jailed for up to six months, or fined for up to $2,500, or both.

They may also face a fine of up to $1,000 if convicted of causing Public Nuisance.

This is the latest case of bike-sharing abuse in Singapore, following the arrest of a 14-year-old boy who allegedly threw an ofo bicycle from Blk 116B Jalan Tenteram.
