Update: According to a statement by the Police, they arrested a 16-year-old male Singaporean teenager, a Secondary 4 student, for his suspected involvement in the death of a 13-year-old male Singaporean teenager, a Secondary 1 student.

They added that on 19 July 2021 at about 11.40am, the Police received a call for assistance at 6 Boon Lay Avenue. Upon arrival, officers found the 13-year-old teenager lying motionless, with multiple wounds at a toilet at the said location.

The 13-year-old teenager was pronounced dead at scene by an SCDF paramedic. Preliminary investigations revealed that the two male teenagers are not known to each other. Notwithstanding the preliminary findings and the arrest of the teenager, the Police are continuing their investigations into the motive for the assault. An axe was also seized as case exhibit.

The Police will be charging the 16-year-old in court on 20 July 2021 with murder, with a view to seeking an order from the court to remand the teenager for psychiatric assessment.

The Police will conduct a thorough investigation and the full facts will be established in court. Pending the court proceedings, the Police would like to urge members of the public to refrain from speculating on the case out of respect for the family of the deceased.
