Man held as hurled trash hits woman

A MAN suspected of throwing objects from a height was put under criminal detention yesterday in line with a new law.

A woman, surnamed Jiang, was hit in the face by a white plastic bag containing broken pieces of a mug when walking past a residential block on Shenyang Road in Yangpu District on February 10.

Jiang began bleeding from a head wound and she was treated at a nearby hospital.

When the incident was reported the same day, police began an investigation into households in the 24-story block.

“There was this household which refused to accept an investigation,” said Wang Zhengrong, deputy director of Daqiao Police Station in the district. “So we put it on a key suspicion list.”

On March 2, a man surnamed Yu was arrested.

Police said he admitted responsibility, saying he was too lazy to go down so he dumped the rubbish from his window.

Yu faces up to a year in jail under a criminal law amendment enacted on March 1.
