TL;DR – Everything you need to know, summarised for you daily at 5pm.
1. Man found dead at Geylang Lor 23
He was reportedly an ex-helper at a corner zi char stall in Geylang, and he was attacked by another man who was described as a regular. More here.
2. Park Mall to close at end of September
The building will be torn down to make way for two office buildings with retail component. More here.
3. Bank tellers are trained to hand over money peacefully
Yeaps, all in the name of safety. An industry source told the media bank staff are instructed to hand over money peacefully during a robbery so as not to endanger the safety of staff and customers.
“We always tell staff – don’t attempt to bring attention to the robbery. You don’t want to agitate the robber or antagonise him. What if he pulls out a gun and it turns into a hostage situation? That’s even worse.”
Makes sense, we suppose. After all, do we really know for sure that the Ang Moh robber who robbed StanChart of $30,000 was really unarmed? Maybe he was just not forced to flash weapons?
