SINGAPORE - A man believed to be under the influence of drugs knocked over seven motorcycles parked at an open-air carpark in Pasir Ris on Monday (May 15) night.

The police told The Straits Times on Tuesday (May 16) that they were alerted to a case of hit and run involving a car and seven motorcycles at Block 118, Pasir Ris Street 11, at 9.56pm on Monday.

"No injuries were reported and a 35-year-old man was arrested for drug-related offences," said the police spokesman.

The man is understood to have driven into the bikes twice before fleeing from the scene.

Facebook user Shafeeqah Ros uploaded pictures of the aftermath to the social media platform at 10.11pm on Monday.

She said she heard a loud bang while watching television and saw a car hit the bikes before fleeing.

The post has been shared more than a thousand times with several users exclaiming at the damage.

While it is unclear what exact damages the bikes received other than broken parts seen strewn on the road, the driver of the car left behind his bumper and car plate.

After turning into the carpark and knocking into the bikes, the driver allegedly reversed and drove into the vehicles again, Shin Min Daily News said in a report on Tuesday.

When Shin Min visited the scene on Monday night, a crowd of people had gathered and police officers were conducting investigations.

An eyewitness who gave her name as only Ms Wang, a 43-year-old who works in the service industry, told reporters that she heard a loud bang followed by the screeching of brakes and another bang.

"I saw seven motorbikes get knocked down, but the driver continued going, and got out only about 100m later. He checked his bumper and a man came forward to talk to him but did not manage to make him stay," she said. "He later returned to his car and drove away."

Ms Wang added that a couple had been nearby when the incident happened, and just narrowly missed being hit by the car.

Police investigations are ongoing.
