4 Teens Assault & Rob Younger Victims At Arab Street On 4 Aug
Teens these days are often glued to screens, choosing to get lost in another world rather than have fun around the neighbourhood.
While their mischiefs tend to include being noisy while out with friends, a group of teenagers decided to commit robbery instead on Thursday (4 Aug).
After cornering a pair of younger victims in the back lane of Arab Street, the teens assaulted and robbed them of their money and handphones.
Thankfully, their charade was up after 18 hours as police used a combination of cameras and ground inquiries to track down and arrest the group.
They will face charges in court today (6 Aug) for voluntarily causing hurt in committing robbery.
