Man to be charged after allegedly molesting woman

SINGAPORE (CNA) – A 47-year-old man will be charged in court after he allegedly molested a woman, and was later found to have a hammer and penknife with him, said police in a news release yesterday.

The police received a report on Saturday afternoon that a woman was molested by an unknown man in a lift of a residential block along Ghim Moh Link. The man was arrested the same day after officers from Clementi Police Division conducted a manhunt operation, with the aid of images from police cameras. He was found to be in possession of a hammer and a pen knife.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the man is believed to be responsible for another similar case of outrage of modesty reported on Thursday, at Telok Blangah Crescent. He will be charged today with aggravated outrage of modesty.
