A construction worker who molested two women was jailed for three years and ordered to be given 12 strokes of the cane yesterday.
Indian national Bose Durairaj, 27, pleaded guilty to squeezing a 19-year-old's breasts and rubbing her groin area a few times, and wrongfully restraining her by hugging her from behind, reported The Straits Times Online.
The incident occurred at a staircase of a block at Bedok Reservoir Road on Oct 4 at about 4.45am. He fled after the victim punched him.
Earlier on Aug 18, Durairaj had molested a 24-year-old woman by dragging her to a rubbish chute collection point in the same area. He pinned her down, pulled up her T-shirt and groped her.
Durairaj tried to remove her pants. But the woman's shouts caught the attention of a resident who yelled at Durairaj, who then fled.
He was arrested on Oct 8.
