We note that a text message has been circulating and alleging that several cases of slashing and robbery targeted at car drivers had occurred. Police have checked and confirm that no reports have been lodged on such cases.
While it is natural to warn friends and loved ones from becoming a victim of crime, the public is advised to first check on the truth of the information before sharing it. We would like to advise the public against spreading unsubstantiated information which may generate unnecessary public alarm, causing fear and panic in the community.
If anyone has information relating to any crime committed, please lodge a police report so that police can look into the matter.
