26-year Darren Tan Yong Xing was trying on clothes at a Cotton On store in VivoCity shopping mall when he noticed a woman entering the changing room next to the one he was in.
He found her attractive and filmed her changing.
Even when she left, Tan stayed on and waited for his next victim.
That happened to be a 21-year-old student who entered the changing room to try on lingerie.
But Tan’s luck ran out this time.
The student noticed him holding his mobile phone under the partition dividing the changing rooms.
The handphone screen was facing upwards and it had been set to recording mode.
When he realised that the woman had spotted him, Tan quickly left the changing room but was detained by the victim outside.
She called out to Cotton On staff for help.
When police checked Tan’s phone, they found a video clip of the victim topless.
They also found a number of other obscene videos, which Tan claimed he had downloaded from the internet.
The incident took place on 30 April last year at about 3.30pm.
At the time, Tan was under a conditional 12-month stern warning for attempting to take an upskirt video of a 32-year-old bank officer at Yio Chu Kang MRT station on 14 July 2014.
Tan was today jailed for 12 weeks for insulting the modesty of a woman, after he was found guilty of filming the student in the Cotton On changing room and his attempt to film an upskirt video in 2014.
He was also fined S$2,000 for having 4 obscene films in his handphone while at the Cotton On shop.
