SINGAPORE: Police have arrested a man who allegedly dressed up as a woman to peep inside the toilet at ITE College West in Choa Chu Kang. 

Responding to queries from The Straits Times, a police spokesman said it received a call about noon on Monday requesting for assistance at an educational institute along Choa Chu Kang Grove. 

A 21-year-old man was arrested for criminal tresspass.  

Dr Yek Tiew Ming, the principal for ITE College West, said he was aware of the incident. 

"Students had alerted our security officers to the breach and assisted the police in the arrest. Students' security is our priority and we are assisting the police in their investigation," he added.  

Twitter user Norrick Nolesta (@Noyyick) posted three photos of the incident at 1.23pm on Monday, which was later removed, with the caption: "This guy dressed as a girl went into my school girl's toilet and tried to peep at my friend." 

A tall bespectacled man wearing a wig and dressed in a black T-shirt, short grey skirt and slippers could be seen being interrogated by a police officer. 

He was also wearing a cap and carrying a blue backpack. 

The photos were also posted on popular local forum Hardwarezone, where his actions were widely ridiculed by netizens. 

In a video put up on YouTube on the same day, angry students were seen confronting the man, who later went down on his knees and seemed to be begging for forgiveness. 

Police said investigations are ongoing.  - The Straits Times/ANN
