4 youngsters between the age of 14 and 16 years old were arrested yesterday morning at around 1am on suspicion that they were planning to rob pedestrians.
The youth – 3 boys and 1 girl – were spotted wearing black face masks and gloves and loitering around Bishan St 12 by a resident, who called the police.
The youth are suspected to have made plans to rob pedestrians while lepaking at the nearby Bishan Harmony Park.
They then reportedly walked towards the road between Bishan St 12 and Junction 8 shopping mall scouting for prey.
It’s unclear why they changed their minds and headed back in the direction of Bishan St 12, where they were spotted by police and arrested.
Investigations are ongoing.
