A Swiss national, Oliver Fricker was charged with three charges of trespassing into the depot on the early hours of 17 May and vandalising the train by spraying paint and damaging public property by cutting a wired fence into property belonging to Land Transport Authority. Another British national has also been named as being involved in the case. However, his whereabouts are unknown.
