While travelling on the MRT, he molested 3 girls aged between 13 and 17 years old on 3 separate occasions.
Ray usually carried out his sexual assaults between Yishun and Khatib MRT stations as the train was more crowded along thie stretch.
On 11 May this year at around 6.50am, he attacked his first victim, a 17-year-old girl in her school uniform, on the train.
Seeing that the girl was playing with her handphone, Ray rubbed her private parts over her clothes with his knuckle.
The girl took a step back, but he moved towards her and continued molesting her.
The schoolgirl lodged a police report that same day.
On 12 Jul, Ray struck again.
He molested a 13-year-old girl who was also in her school uniform by placing his hand on her pelvis.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Gail Wong said:
“The second victim tried to push the accused’s hands away, but the accused continued to press his hand there. The second victim moved slightly to the right, but the accused still kept his hand there. The accused only moved his hand… when he saw that the second victim was about to alight at Yishun station.”
In both instances, Ray had boarded the train at Sembawang MRT station.
Ray was today jailed for 1 year for molesting the 2 girls.
Another charge of molesting a 15-year-old girl was taken into consideration during sentencing.
