Male masseur gets nine months' jail and caning for rubbing the breasts of a client

SINGAPORE: Under the guise of giving her a massage, a 35-year-old masseur molested a woman repeatedly, rubbing her breasts more than 10 times over the span of a minute.

Hu Xidong, a masseur at Zufu Foot Reflexology, was sentenced on Monday (May 14) to nine months' jail and three strokes of the cane for outraging the modesty of a 28-year-old woman.

Two other charges for outrage of modesty were also taken into consideration during sentencing.

The woman, a Japanese national, had visited the outlet at Beach Road and requested a foot and upper back massage on July 19, 2016.

While she had visited the outlet before, it was the first time the victim had asked for an upper back massage and she was not sure of the procedure involved, said Deputy Public Prosecutor Eunice Lau.

After massaging her feet for about 40 minutes, Hu instructed her to go to a massage bed in a separate, curtained area.
