A man was spotted urinating in public -- in full view of passers-by, including a child.

Stomper WT said her 12-year-old daughter witnessed the incident at Pasir Ris Bus Interchange on Saturday (Oct 8).

She shared a video showing the man peeing on a grass patch.

WT added: "My daughter witnessed a man in his 40s to 50s taking a leak in public.

"It was disturbing for her to witness such an act at her age, but she took a video so the man will be reported."

Under the Environmental Public Health Act, it is an offence to urinate or defecate "in or upon any street, arcade, vacant land, river, canal, ditch, drain or watercourse or in any place to which the public has access except in any sanitary convenience provided for such purpose."

The penalty is a fine of up to $1,000 for a first offence, and up to $2,000 and $5,000 for the second and third offence respectively.
