Trio who wreaked havoc in Serangoon porridge shop after dispute over $28 bill arrested

Three people were arrested after thrashing the interior of Heng Long Teochew Porridge located at 1012 Upper Serangoon Road.

In an earlier Stomp article, it was reported that Pang Pei Pei, Tan Sung Meng and Ang Sim Poh had wreaked havoc in the eatery at around 3.30am on May 27 following a dispute over the cost of their food.

According to Shin Min Daily News, they were upset over their $28 bill after ordering porridge, pomfret and several side dishes.

They got into a heated argument with staff before wrecking the fixtures and fittings of Heng Long Teochew Porridge.

A video of the incident posted on The Straits Times' Facebook page shows the customers tossing dishes into the ground and flipping a table.

They then picked up the restaurant's wooden chairs and started smashing the glass panels at the serving area multiple times.

At one point, a man can be seen throwing a huge pot of porridge onto the floor.

The police were called in thereafter but the customers left before they arrived. They were subsequently arrested on May 29 and 30.

Said a police spokesperson in response to a Stomp query:

"The police have arrested two men and a woman aged between 40 to 53 years old for their suspected involvement in a case of Rash Act and Mischief.

"On 27 May 2017, the police received a report regarding a group of people throwing and damaging items at 1012 Upper Serangoon Road. Through extensive follow-up investigations, officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division established the identities of the suspects and arrested them on 29 and 30 May 2017.
