SINGAPORE - A man was caught on video touching a girl's thigh while riding the MRT on the East West Line this morning (Jul 2).
Stomp contributor Andy alerted Stomp to Winna Chin's Facebook post today where she wrote:
"Beware of this guy!! Happened [on] the East West Line just now. Stupiak guy!!!"
She included a video and photos of the man.
In the video, the man appeared to be pretending to sleep but shortly afterwards, glanced down towards the girl's thigh and moved his fingers so that he was touching her.
He appeared to be conscious of what he is doing.
The girl did not move at first and seemed to just lean away from the man and continue her conversation with her friend sitting next to her.
In the comments, Winna said that the man finally alighted the MRT when the girl's friend reached over to slap his hand.
Other commenters empathised with the girl and said that being a teenager, she might not have known how to deal with the uncomfortable situation.
