We often grow fond of the automobiles and bikes that grant us a sense of freedom on the open road in crowded Singapore.
But imagine parking your beloved bike one day in the heartlands, only to return and see that it’s been knocked over and scratched up.
That’s exactly what happened to a rider on Monday (3 Aug), according to his Facebook post on 4 Aug.
The netizen shared that he had returned to see his bike battered, with scratches on its side, a slanted side mirror and broken parts. We summarise his plea for assistance below.
On Monday (3 Aug), the rider described that he had parked his bike below 119A Canberra Crescent.
