Man Arrested For Public Nuisance

by August 16, 2019 General

The Police have arrested a 34-year-old man for his suspected involvement in a case of public nuisance.

On 15 August 2019, the Police received multiple reports of three Instagram posts uploaded by a man. In the postings, the man uploaded photos of himself sniffing female undergarments and performing lewd acts along the common corridor of a HDB block in Choa Chu Kang.

Through follow-up investigations, officers from Jurong Police Division established the identity of the man and arrested him on 16 August 2019 at about 4.30am, less than eight hours after the first report was made. The offending posts have since been taken down.

The man will be charged in court on 17 August 2019 with public nuisance under Section 290 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224. If convicted, he faces a fine of up to $1,000.
