Five teenagers, arrested in connection with the high-rise vandalism at the rooftop of a Toa Payoh HDB block on Wednesday, were charged for the offence on Saturday.

The 17-year-old boys, who face charges of vandalism with common intention for the incident at Block 85A, Lorong 4 Toa Payoh, have been remanded for a week for further investigations at Tanglin Police Division.

Goh Rong Liang, David William Graaskov, Chay Nam Shen, Boaz Koh Wen Jie and Reagan Tan Chang Zhi - all Singaporeans - were brought to the State Courts on Saturday morning after they were nabbed by the police on Friday - just two days after a report over the incident was lodged.

If convicted, the boys could each be jailed for up to three years or fined up to $2,000, and receive at least three strokes of the cane.
