Woman teacher pursues female colleague for hug and kiss

Woman teacher pursues female colleague for hug and kiss

A relief teacher was so enamoured of her female colleague that she harassed her for seven months.

Then Poh Sim Ying, 27, took it a step further.

Too far, as it turned out. She ended up in court yesterday where she pleaded guilty to using criminal force on her former colleague on April 15.

She had pursued the 25-year-old victim from a bus to a taxi and then to a bus stop where she tried to kiss and hug the woman.

Investigations revealed that between September last year and April this year, the victim had made numerous police reports against Poh for harassing her.


The drama started at 3pm that day when the two women were on a bus at Commonwealth Avenue West.

Ten minutes into the journey, Poh approached the younger woman and started touching her hair.

She also held on to the woman's hands, and tried to hug her by placing her arm around the victim's waist. Out of fear, the younger woman asked the bus driver for help. He stopped the bus for her to exit, but Poh jumped off as well.
