Another Day in Yishun: Teen Robbed a 7-Eleven There & Was Arrested

There will be times in your life when you do something you really regret.

Sometimes, you’re able to walk away from the mistake a better man. Sometimes, you get away with it and do it again.

And sometimes, you won’t be able to walk away at all.

That was what happened to this 16-year-old kid who allegedly robbed a store in Singapore.

Man walked into 7-Eleven Store with a knife

On 19 June 2017, a man walked into a 7-Eleven store at Yishun Ave 5. He was allegedly holding on to a knife which he used to rob the store with.

He walked away with $230 in cash.

Ang Mo Kio police officers alerted to the crime

A 22-year-old victim reported the crime to the police at 10.55pm, and officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division conducted extensive follow-up investigations.

They arrested the suspect two days later on Wednesday (21 June 2017) at Yishun Central.

Suspect to be charged on Friday

The suspect will be charged in court on Friday (23 June 2017). 

Should he be found guilty, he faces a jail term between five to 20 years, and will receive at least 12 strokes of cane. 

Netizens question his motive behind the crime

As with most issues on the net, you’ll have two camps of supporters. One for the punishment, and one against.

There are those who believes that it’s necessary to deter future youth crimes
