Elderly woman hit by bicycle wheel at Eunos Crescent: Alleged culprit is same teen arrested in Dec over killer litter

By Stomp

A 16-year-old teenager was charged in court on Saturday after an elderly woman was hit by a bicycle wheel which had apparently been thrown from a block of flats.

On Friday, Stomp contributor Nurdina saw paramedics attending to a woman who had been hit by the wheel that was thrown down Block 1 at Eunos Crescent.

67-year-old Madam Mahani Abdullah was conveyed conscious to Singapore General Hospital.

She was on her way to play chess at a nearby senior citizens centre when the wheel landed on her head, Shin Min Daily News reported.

Upon police's arrival at 3.14 pm, they arrested a 16-year-old boy.

The Straits Times reports that he was charged in court on Saturday with committing a rash act.

The alleged culprit is the same teenager who was arrested in December last year in relation to a series of rash acts of throwing items down a housing block in Eunos Crescent.

These items included bricks, a dumbbell and a water dispenser.

In one incident, police were called in after a brick hit a man on the hand.
