SINGAPORE — Seven inmates at the Singapore Boys’ Home were arrested after behaving in an “unruly manner”.

Responding to media queries, the police said on Thursday (12 September) they received a call for assistance made on Tuesday at about 10.05pm.

On arrival, they found the seven individuals from three dormitories behaving in an “unruly manner”.

They were flipping beds, throwing objects out of their rooms and making a “loud ruckus”, said the police, adding that some had damaged the televisions and basins in their rooms.

No one was injured during the incident, which is under investigation, and the home "returned to normalcy" within two hours, added the police.

Run by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), the home is a juvenile residential facility that houses at-risk youngsters aged between 12 and 19.

An MSF spokesperson confirmed to Yahoo News Singapore that an incident “involving unruly behaviour and vandalism” had occurred on Tuesday.

“The police was called in accordance to the Singapore Boys’ Home’s protocols,” added the spokesperson.

“The Singapore Boys’ Home will continue to assist the Singapore Police Force in their investigations.”
