A serial molester was on Thursday sentenced to 11 weeks in jail by a district court for outraging the modesty of a 12-year-old girl.

Student Phua Sze Son, 22, boarded a public bus on September 21 last year and sat next to his victim, who was in a school T-shirt and shorts and seated by the window.

Palm facing downwards, he slid his left hand under his victim's thigh and repeatedly wriggled his fingers against her shorts.

The girl got uncomfortable and decided to leave but had to use her bag to force her way out of the seat after Phua, who was blocking her path to the aisle, would not give way.
