A 23-year-old man was arrested on Thursday evening for suspected outrage of modesty at a housing estate in Woodlands.

At about 6.35pm on Thursday, a 19-year-old girl was allegedly molested by the man, who had earlier tried to befriend her, at Woodlands Avenue 6.

She then immediately informed her father, who helped to keep a lookout for the man who was last seen at Woodlands Avenue 7.

The girl and her father spotted the man about 15 minutes later around the area. Together, with the help of three other members of the public, they detained the man.
