oBike has filed a police report after a couple was caught on camera dumping their bikes into a drain in a video on Stomp.
The video which was sent in by Stomp contributor Chin, was posted on Stomp on Nov 20 where it went viral, garnering over 50,000 views on Facebook and sparking outcry from netizens who condemned the couple’s behaviour.
The video was also later posted to other Facebook pages such as ROADS.sg and reported by other publications such as The Straits Times.
Mr Edward Chen, co-founder and chief marketing officer of oBike, told The Straits Times that oBike is « aware of the video that is currently circulating online and can verify that the bicycles in the video belong to us ».
« It is evident that the perpetrators have damaged our bikes maliciously and we strongly condemn their behaviour, » he said.
« Our operations teams are working closely with the police to identify those responsible. »
oBike added that it has since filed a police report.
The bike sharing operator has lodged a total five police reports of its bikes being abused and vandalised since its launch in April this year.
Police investigations are ongoing.
