How did vandal get up there?

The trapdoor was secured with a padlock. The ladder leading to the trapdoor at Block 85A, Lorong 4, Toa Payoh, was detached.

So how did someone get to the roof above the 22nd storey of the block to vandalise a wall with vulgarities - in spite of the enhanced security measures?

He got to the roof, and then standing on a ledge less than 2m wide, used red paint to scrawl his messages. Even professional painters, who have done work on HDB rooftops, said it was a dangerous stunt.

Ms Dorothy Cheung, the public relations manager of the PAP Town Councils, said preliminary investigations have found no breach in security.

 

Update: Teen boys charged in Court for Toa Payoh rooftop vandalism
