A Singaporean naval officer on trial in Australia for committing indecent acts has been found guilty of forcing a woman fellow cadet to kiss him.

But lieutenant Benedict Ang Yong Chuean, a trainee at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA), was cleared of a second charge of undoing the woman's bra and touching her breast while she slept, Australian media reports said.

According to the Canberra Times on Friday, the 22-year-old regular in the Republic of Singapore Navy will be sentenced late next month. He remains on bail.

Ang was arrested in May last year for allegedly entering the 18-year-old woman's room in the same military college, and committing the indecent acts.
