The incident occurred on Jan. 1, 2020, outside a unit in Block 148, Lorong 1, Toa Payoh.

Unbeknownst to the woman and child, their act was caught on the resident’s CCTV camera.

A one-and-a-half-minute clip has been uploaded online showing the woman and child throwing away at least five pieces of laundry off the corridor.

Police report made

The resident whose laundry was thrown away then made a police report.

According to The Online Citizen, the woman and child are allegedly the next-door neighbours of the affected party.

What video showed

The child is seen striking first as she casually threw what appeared to be a pink towel or garment downstairs.

She then did the same with another dark blue garment.

A woman subsequently entered the video, and at one point, stared directly at the CCTV.

The woman and child then took turns to throw another three pieces of garment downstairs.

According to the police report, the clothes were hung out to dry at 9am.

The discovery that some pieces of laundry had gone missing was made at about 9pm.

Upon viewing the CCTV footage, it was ascertained that the laundry was thrown downstairs at about 5.50pm.

Both sides have been having a long-term running dispute, the police report read.

According to the police report, this was not the first time something like this has happened.
