A man was jailed 12 weeks on Wednesday for insulting the modesty of a teenager.
Mohamed Haryfan Mohd Razali, 21, who faced four charges, admitted to uttering words with intent to insult the modesty of the 19-year-old in 2011, and for peeping at her on May 12 last year.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Joshua Lim said in July 2011, Haryfan was at the void deck of his block in Pasir Ris when he saw the victim walking past him and was instantly attracted to her looks. He saw her enter her unit and took note of the address.
From then until his arrest in May last year, he visited the teen's home six to eight times, causing the family much distress. The victim and her 44-year-old mother made numerous police reports but were unable to ascertain his identity.
