A 42-year-old woman died after she was stabbed at the void deck of Block 206 Tampines Street 21 on Wednesday morning (Feb 10).

A 45-year-old man, who is believed to be the assailant and known to the woman, was subsequently found motionless at the foot of his flat at Block 205A Punggol Field at around 9.10am.

Stomp was alerted to a photo circulating online of the woman lying covered in blood at the Tampines void deck as well as an image of officers at the scene.

An image of an official report, including a photo of the alleged suspect, has also been circulating on social media.

The police said in a statement they were alerted to the stabbing incident at about 6.30am.

Upon arrival, officers found the woman injured with slash wounds to the neck and lying motionless at the void deck of the said block.

Both the woman and the man were unconscious when separately taken to the hospitals where they subsequently died.

Police investigations into the unnatural deaths are ongoing.

The police added in their statement that they are aware of an official document and a photo of the female deceased have been circulated online and on messaging platforms.

"The police urge members of the public to refrain from circulating them out of respect for the deceased and the aggrieved families," the statement said.

"The police are also looking into the unauthorised circulation of the image of the official document online."
