A 60-year-old man was arrested for making a false bomb threat yesterday evening after he was detained by security personnel at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. This is the second such case in just a week, after a mentally unwell 17-year-old was arrested at Boon Lay bus interchange after making a false bomb threat last Wednesday.

The police said in a statement:

“On Aug 26 at about 7.32 pm, the police received a call from a security personnel of Singapore Indoor Stadium stating that he had detained a man who claimed that he had a bomb with him. At the time of the incident, an event was on-going at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.”

The man was subsequently arrested by police officers from the Bedok Police Division.

“Preliminary investigation indicated that the suspect had no intention or means to carry out his threats. The Police treat all security threats seriously and will not hesitate to take action against anyone who causes public alarm.”

Under Regulation 8(1) of the United Nations (Anti-Terrorism Measures) Regulations, it is an offence for a person to communicate or make available by any means any information which he knows or believes to be false to another person, with the intention of inducing in him or any other person a false belief that a terrorist act has been, is being or will be carried out.
