A 37-year-old man believed to be involved in a series of cat slashing cases reported in Ang Mo Kio since April was arrested on Tuesday (Jun 8), said the National Parks Board (NParks).

The man was arrested in an operation conducted by NParks’ Animal and Veterinary Service (AVS) with police support on Tuesday morning, said Ms Jessica Kwok, the agency’s group director for community animal engagement.

He will be charged on Wednesday with animal cruelty, an offence under the Animals and Birds Act, said Ms Kwok.

Animal welfare group SPCA told CNA last month that 10 cats with slash wounds had been seen in Ang Mo Kio since an injured cat was first spotted at the end of April.

The incidents occurred around several Housing Board blocks in Ang Mo Kio – 302, 316B, 335, 337, 343, and 346.
