The police are investigating a case of vandalism after someone scribbled the unit numbers of residents who own dogs on town council notices and walls at Block 351 Clementi Avenue 2.

A Stomper shared with Stomp she was shocked when she saw her unit number was included.

The notices that were vandalised were put up by Jurong-Clementi Town Council informing residents to stop letting their dogs defecate and urinate at the void deck.

According to the Stomper, the unit numbers exposed belong to residents who own dogs.

"We first saw the notices put up on May 25 and since then, we made an effort to stop our dog from making a ruckus and now, he only pees and poos on the grass.

However, on May 28, they saw their unit number had been scrawled on a notice at their block.

On May 30, she was horrified to see three unit numbers scrawled on a wall on the fifth floor of her block, with "dog pee" written underneath.

"We are so worried because we feel stalked," she said.

"It's so weird because we always shut our main door.

"We know the owners of the other two units and played with their dogs as well and they were also shocked."

She added that she never received any mail, e-mail, phone call or visit in-person regarding her dog.

She has since reported the matter to the police and town council.

In response to a Stomp query, a Jurong-Clementi Town Council spokesman said the case is under police investigation.

"Upon receiving the feedback about posters being vandalised on May 28, 2022, the resident immediately removed the posters that had unit numbers scribbled on them," the spokesman said.

"Upon being informed on May 30, 2022 of the graffiti on walls, the affected walls were re-painted with a fresh coat of paint the same day.

"We have reached out to the resident and explained that the graffiti and unit numbers were not written by our officers.  

"Police are investigating.

"The town council takes a serious view of what happened — these acts of vandalism have damaged common property, and furthermore the vandal’s graffiti had cited residents’ unit numbers.

"We urge residents who may have seen anyone suspicious to come forward to assist the police with their investigations.”

The police confirmed with Stomp that a report had been lodged.
