13 YEAR OLD BOY ARRESTED FOR THROWING OFO BIKE FROM HDB FLAT

A 13 year old boy has been arrested yesterday for allegedly throwing an ofo bike from a HDB flat in Whampoa. This comes after a video of him and other teens went viral. Some people, including ofo Singapore, have already made police reports before the boy was arrested on the same day.

The police classified his case as rash act and will take swift action. A person convicted of rash act may face up to 6 months' jail or fined up to $2500. However, the police said they may have other considerations as the boy is still a minor. Minor so can escape? How can liddat?

WORKERS' PARTY TAKES FEEDBACK, REMOVES DIVIDERS FOR WHEELCHAIR USERS

Eunos Grove (Blk 611-618, Bedok Reservoir Road) has hosted two beautiful archway entrances to the estate for more than 10 years now. Recently, an elderly gentleman stopped me on my estate rounds and asked me if I could do him a favour. He said he had seen a fair number of wheelchair bound residents getting themselves wet in rainy weather, in spite of the large archway between Blk 615 and Blk 616 offering what appears to be ample shelter. The problem was the presence of two dividers which require a wheelchair bound person to negotiate, exposing them to the rain. The elderly man asked me if I could get the Aljunied Hougang Town Council to do something about this.

I have been monitoring this area for the last month or so since works were completed and swing by every now and then to look for the elderly gentleman whose feedback has made a meaningful difference to some residents who ply the area often enough. I have not met him as yet. The Town Council will proceed to cut a pathway through the second archway that connects Blk 617 and Blk 614 in due course.
