SINGAPORE - A female student at the National University of Singapore (NUS) was allegedly filmed by another student in a bathroom at one of the residence halls on Saturday morning (May 11).
A police report has been made about the incident at Raffles Hall and the suspect has been apprehended by the police for further investigations, said an NUS spokesman.
Police said they received a call for assistance around 8.10am, and subsequently arrested a 26-year-old NUS male student, a resident of the same residential hall, for criminal trespass.
The man is also being investigated for insulting the modesty of a woman, added the police.
The NUS spokesman said "the university is working closely with the police in their investigations, and will take the necessary disciplinary actions". The university is also providing the victim with "dedicated support and assistance".
The spokesman said that since April, the university has been enhancing security on its campuses through improved closed-circuit television (CCTV) coverage, upgrading of shower cubicles and toilet locks to make them more secure, and increased patrols by campus security officers.
"All these measures are in the midst of being implemented by Raffles Hall, including the secure shower cubicles which will be installed in the coming weeks," said the director of campus security in a safety advisory e-mail to students and staff on Saturday afternoon, as seen by The Straits Times.
