SINGAPORE - A 16-year-old student charged last month with hurling a bicycle wheel from a high floor of an HDB block faces four more charges.

On Friday, Abdul Hamid Rahmat's bail was revoked, as he was seen as a "clear danger" to the public.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Goh Yi Ling said the teen re-offended on May 16 when he threw the bicycle wheel from the Eunos Crescent flat. At the time, he was on police bail for four other "killer litter" offences.

His original charge has been amended to one of causing grievous hurt to Madam Mahani Abdullah, 67, by doing an act so rashly as to endanger life or the personal safety of others.
