Two vehicle owners had made police reports on 16 Nov between 10pm and about 11.20pm saying that the rear windscreens of their cars had shattered for unknown reasons. Their cars had been parked in Foch Road and Desker Road.

After investigating, police established the suspect’s identity and arrested him in Hougang Avenue 3 at 2.20am on Saturday.

Preliminary investigations indicate that the accused had tossed pebbles out of his vehicle on several instances other than on 16 Nov.

Investigations against the man are ongoing. Any person found guilty of committing a rash act which endangers the life or personal safety of others may be jailed for up to six months, or fined up to $2,500, or both.
