According to CNA, the man, Sulaiman Abdul Majid Maricar, was placed in a lock up at Woodlands Police Headquarters in October 2020.

While he was in the lock-up cell, Sulaiman was given a drink in a paper cup and food for lunch on Oct. 14, 2020. Sulaiman defecated into the cup and threw it at an officer on duty later in the evening when the latter came to him.

When the officer asked Sulaiman to explain his action, Sulaiman ignored him.

The officer then reported the incident to his in-charge before going to the nearby toilet to clean himself, the Straits Times reported.

Following the incident, Sulaiman was released on bail the next day but was arrested again a week later for theft offences, CNA reported.

The 34-year-old is a repeat offender who has been in and out of jail for multiple offences.

In 2009, he was convicted of house breaking, according to Yahoo.

He has also been banned from driving for 25 years. Despite the ban, he stole a motorcycle and broke into a food centre in Tai Seng with his then-girlfriend on Oct. 23, 2020, which led to him being arrested again.

He pleaded guilty to six charges on May 28, including one charge of using criminal force on a public servant.
