A man driving a Malaysian-registered Proton X50 was caught on camera scratching a Honda Civic in Singapore.
The vandal's antics were recorded by a nearby car's dashboard-mounted camera and later uploaded to TikTok by user @benjunior_87 on May 2.
Man scratches both sides of car
Text overlaid on the video as well as timestamps on the dashcam footage indicated that the incident took place at around 11:40am on May 2, 2022.
The incident also appeared to have taken place along Jalan Berseh, near New World Centre.
A man wearing a white polo shirt, sunglasses, a mask and carrying an umbrella could be seen walking towards a parked red Honda Civic and using an unidentified item to scratch the left side of the car.
He did this in broad daylight, with other people milling about in the area.
He then walked around the back of the car and continued scratching its right side.
He then returned to his dark grey Proton X50 parked in the middle of the road.
