Residents of an apartment complex in Hougang, Singapore are being terrorized by a neighbor who has been banging on the walls of his apartment for 11 years.

The 41-year-old man was reported to the police and the Housing Development Board (HDB) on several occasions, to no avail. His next door neighbor has created a TikTok account in April to document daily incidents, which include the man hanging around his neighbors’ apartment doors and scolding them through their windows.

He apparently lives with his mother in the apartment complex and works for the Republic of Singapore Air Force and at Aikido Shinju-Kai as an instructor.

According to his neighbor’s TikTok videos, the man bangs on the walls of his apartment all day and all night. Seen in several videos, the man pounded his walls intensely at times such as 2:54 a.m., 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m.

The TikTok user speculated that the man is not sleeping as he wreaks havoc on his neighbors throughout the night. She also explained in a video that the sounds are amplified at night and can be heard from other nearby apartment complexes.

Residents of the apartment complex have submitted countless reports to various organizations including the HDB, authorities, city council, Members of Parliament (MPs) and community dispute resolution tribunals. The incident was even reported on television and in several articles. The man, however, continues to harass his neighbors since he only receives warnings.

“I don’t know if authorities like the police can do anything to my knowledge, your neighbor has broken no laws or committed any offences,” a response from the MP said.

‘We had advised your neighbor to be considerate and to keep the noise level down during his daily activities,’ said a response from the HDB.

In addition to the noise pollution, several neighbors reported a toxic, pungent smell of chlorine coming from the man’s apartment. According to the TikTok user, he uses a small desk fan aimed at his apartment to amplify the smell. When they reported the smell at the city council, they were told the smell came “from a diffuser with eucalyptus and peppermint scented oil” which the council “does not regulate”.
