YOUTHS WAVE KNIFE ON MRT
2 with knife arrested
By Vanessa Jalleh
TWO youths have been arrested for brandishing a knife onboard an MRT train.
The incident occurred in December 2009.
The suspects, aged 16 and 17 years, were on a train with two friends on New Year's eve when one of them took out a knife from his bag and started posing with it, while his friend took a photo.
A photo of the suspects brandishing the knife was later uploaded onto citizen journalism website Stomp.
The two teenagers have been released on bail and are still under investigation.
They are also being investigated for gang-related offences.
