On 20 February 2020, the Police received a report that spittle was found on the buttons of a lift panel at Rumbia LRT station. Through ground enquiries and with the aid of images from Police cameras, officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division established the identities of the teenagers on 21 February 2020. Preliminary investigations revealed that the teenagers had spat at the said lift panel on 19 February 2020 at about 6.10pm.
