ANG MO KIO FRUIT STALL HIT BY ALLEGED ROCKET SPARKLER ATTACK

A mystery suspect fired a “rocket” at a fruit stall near Block 226 Ang Mo Kio yesterday afternoon, causing alarm to the shop keeper of the affected stall and the surrounding hawker center patrons.

According Chinese newspaper Wanbao, the rocket might have been a fire work sparkler as it emitted sparks and a hissing sound as it flew into the stall and exploded with a pop.

When it exploded, it threw up sparks at least 1 meter into the air. The panicked stall owner managed to fling the sparkler out of the stall under a nearby table where it continued to burn and emit white hot sparks.

The sparkler was put under control after 2 other passersby launched a fire extinguisher at it.

The police were alerted and arrived within minutes of the incident. No one was hurt during the attack, although the culprit remains at large.
