An unemployed man who molested a young girl and her sister-in-law within moments of each other was sentenced to nine months in prison.
Razak Ridwan, 47, approached the 12-year-old outside her father’s photography shop on Dec 31 last year. When the girl stepped to her left to give him space to pass, Razak reached out and touched her private parts through the front of her jeans.
He repeated the act on her 26-year-old sister-in-law, who was standing nearby.
He pleaded guilty to molesting the girl, with one other count of molesting her sister-in-law taken into consideration.
District Judge Chay Yuen Fatt spared Razak caning on account of his history of schizophrenia. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
