A construction worker was jailed for six months on Thursday for molestation, theft and criminal trespass.

Indian national Palanisami Mohankumar, 27, pleaded guilty to stealing a mobile phone from the Housing Board flat of Ms Mek Phin Ap Eh Wang, 35, along Yishun Street 22 on Sept 29, 2012.

He also admitted to touching the thigh of an 11-year-old girl through her flat's common corridor window in Little India last Aug 30; and committing criminal trespass at a unit in Bedok Reservoir Road on Sept 17 last year.

A district court heard that Palanisamy was walking around the Yishun block past midnight on Sept 29, 2012 when he found the sliding window of Ms Mek's unit not properly secured. He then stole her mobile phone which was lying on the table.
