Stomper Chris came across some adults helping a child to relieve herself in a trash can in front of a shop at 63 Spottiswoode Park Road on Wednesday afternoon (Feb 21).  

Chris, who stays just across the street told Stomp that he had just entered his car at around 11.15pm when he witnessed the incident. 

He said:

"I am a permanent resident (PR) and I have stayed in Singapore for over 20 years. 

"The neighbourhood has both for commercial buildings and residential areas. 

“What my wife and I value about Singapore is its cleanliness. Letting a child relieve herself at a trash bin is definitely the low point. 

“This sort of behaviour isn’t just shocking, it’s upsetting. This takes us back in time, not forward.”

Chris said that the people appeared to be tourists patronising a shop in the vicinity, adding:

“Why couldn’t they have asked to use the toilet in the shop?

“These tourists sometimes also head up to residences and ask to use the bathrooms.

"Neighbours suffer, additionally from the throngs of tourists smoking, loitering, littering, shouting, ... and now this! This just isn’t right.”
