Brazen vandals strike at Sembawang carpark, openly taunt police: "Come and catch us. Good luck!"

Vandals have sprayed graffiti on the walls of a multi-story carpark at Block 361 Sembawang Crescent, with at least 10 different messages taunting the police. 

A resident, Mr Hu, 48, told Shin Min Daily News that he had discovered the graffiti on Sunday. 

Mr Hu said that he was parking his car when he discovered the graffiti spanning across the originally white walls. 

He added that he was worried that the vandals would continue with their actions.

To prevent his own car from becoming a target, he has decided to park it at places with more human traffic recently.

He also revealed that after the incident, the police went down to the scene to investigate, and he hopes that the vandals will be brought to justice.

Another resident, Mr Lai, 40, said: "The vandals' actions are immoral. The carpark was brand new. It’s just two to three months old and still, they do this.

"If I see anyone suspicious, I’ll definitely report them to the police."

Reporters later visited the scene and found that the vandals drew faces, wrote profanities and other phrases such as, ‘despair’, ‘regret’ and ‘this is art’. 

The vandals even wrote ‘Catch me if you can’ and ‘Come and catch us. Good Luck!’, seemingly to taunt the police. 

According to observation by the reporters, the 1st, 3rd and 4th floor were the most badly vandalised. 

The writings on the wall also looked to be distinct, and it is believed that the vandalism was done by more than one person. 

In response to media queries, a police spokesman said that they were alerted to a case of mischief on Saturday (March 17) at around 11.45pm, and investigations are ongoing.
