Dear A.S.S. Editor
A 60 year old man is being investigated by the police, for his suspected involvement in a case of mischief where toothpicks were embedded in public bus seats. The Police said in a statement that they received the report of mischief from the bus company on 4 August.
The bus company said that one of the passenger seats on their bus was perforated with toothpicks. Pictures of three toothpicks sticking out of a red bus seat, believed to be related to this case, had made their rounds on social media in late July. Officers from TransCom and the Clementi Police Division conducted extensive investigations and referred to closed-circuit television footage, which helped identify the suspect. It was believed the bus was an SBS Transit bus.
Investigations against the 60 year old are ongoing. The man did not explain why the toothpicks were embedded in the pubic bus.
