Exceptional people: 11-year-old receives award from the police


On Dec 21 last year, Nor Efiqah Mohd Hamzah, then 10, was at the mini-mart at her flat's void deck when she saw a man stealing from the shop.

As she was queuing to buy mineral water with her friend she saw the man in front of her quickly stuff some chocolate bars into his pocket.

Efiqah, now 11 and a Primary 5 student at Zhangde Primary School, immediately alerted the shopkeeper in time for him to call the police. He chased the suspect and the man was arrested for shop theft.
