He realised that the housewife was not mentally sound and decided to take advantage of her. On Nov 24, Roopasingha Arachchige Anil Perera accosted the 47-year-old woman as she was walking to a coffee shop in Serangoon Central.

He molested the woman and later also got her to do a sex act. The 31-year-old Sri Lankan was today sentenced to three years in jail and nine strokes of the cane. He was also fined $1,000.

Perera is unemployed and is here on a special pass.
