A 25-year-old man was arrested outside Bishan MRT station yesterday for possession of a scheduled weapon.
An eyewitness, Ms Lim, said that the man and 2 of his male friends were sitting along the pedestrian walkway outside the station.
Police from the Community Policing Unit who happened to be on patrol found the 3 men suspicious and searched them.
That’s when the officers found on the 25-year-old a flick knife, and a packet containing a substance that looked like drugs.
Police detained the man, and investigations are ongoing.
