The Police have arrested six men, aged between 22 and 34, for their suspected involvement in a case of rioting armed with deadly weapon.
On 14 September 2023 at about 3.55am, the Police were alerted to a fight involving weapons along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. Upon Police’s arrival, officers spotted two injured men at the location, who were subsequently conveyed conscious to the hospital. Preliminary investigations revealed that the men, both aged 20 and known to each other, were purportedly attacked by other men following a dispute. Through follow-up investigations and with the aid of images from CCTVs and police cameras, officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division established the identities of the other men and arrested them.
A 31-year-old man has since been charged in court and remanded for further investigations on 15 September 2023, for the offence of rioting armed with deadly weapon under Section 148 of the Penal Code Chapter 1871. Another five men, aged between 22 and 34, will be charged in court for the same offence on 16 September 2023. Police investigations are ongoing.
