2 People in Bedok Assaulted & Robbed 18YO of S$940 & a Set of In-Ear Headphones


It’s pretty hard to get away with crimes in Singapore.

With how small our island home is, most crimes can be found out pretty fast with the police hot on your trail.

And if it’s something like assault or robbery, you’re going to be the talk of the town for sure.

2 People in Bedok Assaulted & Robbed 18YO of S$940 & a Set of In-Ear Headphones

But two people decided to go ahead and do a combination of both.

Mothership reported that a 23-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy were arrested by the police.

They were suspected to have involvement in a case of robbery with hurt.

The crime took place along Bedok North Street 2.

On 15 April, around 1.30am, police said an 18-year-old male teenager made a report, claiming he had been assaulted and robbed by the duo.

He said roughly S$940 and a set of in-ear headphones were taken by the two suspects.

Two Suspects Were Arrested Quickly

Thankfully, they didn’t get far.

The police at Bedok Police Division. figure their identities out from CCTV footages and ground enquiries.

Just a few hours later, both suspects were arrested.

Roughly S$750 in cash was found and the in-ear headphones were recovered and seized, the police said.

The 23-year-old man will be charged on 16 April and the 15-year-old will be charged on 19 April.

Committing a robbery carries a jail term of at least five years, but less than 20 years. They will also receive at least 12 strokes of the cane.

Crimes Caught Quick

For those who play video games, there’s an event called ‘Games Done Quick’ where people try to speedrun various games for charity.


Well, the law in Singapore is also known to ‘speedrun’ certain crimes as well.

In February, two 17-year-old boys were arrested as suspects in stealing from a jewellery shop along Woodlands Drive 44.

Around 5.45pm on 21 Feb, the police got a report that the two had stolen from the shop before fleeing.

However, their identities were quickly exposed through police cameras and getting evidence on the scene.

Within 12 hours from the report, the two boys were arrested.


In another case, police had received a report at around 9:25am on 26 March 2021 that a motorcycle was stolen at a car park along Sengkang East Way.

Two girls, aged 14 and 15, as well as an 18-year-old male, were caught by the police three days later on 29 March. The victim’s motorcycle was also recovered.

Similar to the other two cases, officers used images from CCTV and police cameras in addition to ground enquiries to establish the identities of the suspects.

Moral of the story? Just keep your hands to yourself and don’t do it.
