All Singaporeans know that Yishun is a particularly “happening” estate.
One thing it may not have had, though, is a flasher — until now.
A flasher who was recently reported at the new Build-To-Order (BTO) flats in the estate has been arrested.
The person isn’t a Yishun resident.
In a Facebook update on Friday (25 Nov), Nee Soon GRC MP Derrick Goh said residents had informed him of a flasher in his Nee Soon Link ward.
The person was seen around the new BTO flats in the area, including Melody Spring, which is at the edge of the Seletar Reservoir.
He assured them that the Singapore Police Force (SPF) was on the case.
As the police investigated the reports, Mr Goh was kept informed, he said.
The MP also informed residents that they worked very hard on it.
That’s why it must have been great to be able to break the good news that the flasher had been arrested.
While Mr Goh didn’t give much details on the person’s identity, he did say that the flasher isn’t a resident of Yishun.
That raises questions about why the person chose to undertake their lurid actions in Yishun.
The MP hoped the news would relieve residents and their families, and thanked the SPF for their efforts.
In a follow-up post on Saturday (26 Nov), he also said many Melody Spring residents he visited were happy that the flasher had been caught.
That isn’t the only awkward issue Mr Goh has had to deal with since he became an MP in 2020.
In Oct, a resident in Yishun behaved aggressively at his Meet-The-People Session, making “bullying demands” that included a 1km-long covered walkway.
The resident later apologised to him in a letter, and the MP accepted.
Hopefully, some peace can settle over Nee Soon Link for a while.
