A 30-year-old Chinese national was charged in court on Friday for stealing from a commuter onboard an MRT train.

Wei Guangyao was accused of stealing a $360 wallet - containing various cards and cash - from a 25-year-old woman between the Kallang and Raffles Place stations on Wednesday morning.

He was remanded for further investigations for his possible involvement in at least five other similar cases. The case will be mentioned in court again on Jan 4.

The police advised the public to safeguard their personal belongings in public places at all times.
