Please be on the lookout for a Chinese man (maybe 2) as 2 similar incidents have been reported recently in BU 3.

Incident 1

About 9pm 2 Wednesday's ago, a Chinese man walked into a house where the owner (non-paying resident) has the tendency to leave his gate wide open most of the time.

The man walked into his house, wielded a knife & the owner handed over his wallet.

The robber (speaking in Hokkien) continued ransacking his house while he locked himself in an upstairs bedroom, managed to open the window grill & climbed over to the next door neighbour for help.

The neighbour then called me but the robber has disappeared by the time the guard, the police & a few neighbours came to his house.

Incident 2

This Thu, about 2pm, a Chinese man used a bunch of keys to try & open the front gate of a house (non-paying resident) after pressing the door bell & there was no response.

The young college boy (who is staying with his single mother) shouted at him but he continued to try opening the lock & shouted back (in Cantonese) that he is looking a for a certain "Auntie ... ".

All this while, a housewife staying opposite did not realise what was happening although she saw them talking loudly as she thought he was delivering food.
The man went away when the college boy continued shouting. The young man told me of this incident at the suggestion of a next door neighbour (a paying member), whom he related to.

Prowling Indian motor-cyclist

The guards are also on the lookout for a prowling Indian motor-cyclist which a lady resident reported was approaching her in a suspicious manner after she parked her car & was walking to open her front gate one afternoon.

This man turned his motor-cycle around when she quickly locked her gate after entering her house compound. The guards are also on extra alert during Friday afternoons, where there is heavy traffic entering BU3 due to Friday prayers and incidents were reported previously of 2 Malay man going round in a red Proton car behaving suspiciously.

Please remind your family and neighbors to always be alert.

Press the Panic Button of your alarm if necessary, to attract attention, and frighten off such characters.

The Panic Button works even if the alarm is not switched on.

If you notice any suspicious vehicle, please note down the registration no & immediately contact the guards.
