Man jailed six months for beating waitress who refused to go home with him

Yahoo News Singapore   28 March 2018

Enraged that the waitress did not want to have a meal or go home with him, the man chased after the woman and threw punches at her, causing her to black out.

Samson Tanuwidjaja, 36, ended up fracturing Tessie V. Chen’s nose and bruising her face near her workplace in Orchard Towers.

Tanuwidjaja, a Singapore permanent resident, was jailed for six months on one charge of voluntarily causing grievous hurt to the 31-year-old waitress on a pavement along Orchard Road on 28 October 2015. He was also ordered to pay about $635.75 in compensation to Chen.

Tanuwidjaja’s lawyer, Shashi, said his client would be filing an appeal.

The former executive associate at AIA Singapore was found guilty on 23 November last year after a six-day trial. Prior to AIA, Tanuwidjaja was working in several leading banks as a personal banker and a relationship manager.

Man jailed eight years, caned for oral sex on 13-year-old boy in coffeeshop toilet

Yahoo News Singapore

9 April 2018

After several unsuccessful attempts to get a 13-year-old boy to his house, the man convinced the boy to go with him to a coffeeshop toilet.

In November 2016, Indian national Samsugani Jahir Hussain, 46, followed the boy into the cubicle and performed oral sex on him.

On 9 April, Samsugani was sentenced to eight years’ jail and 12 strokes of the cane after he pleaded guilty to one charge of aggravated sexual assault on the boy, who is now 15. A separate count of molesting the boy, who cannot be named to protect his identity, was taken into consideration for Samsugani’s sentence.

Samsugani was a cook who worked at a food stall at Northpoint Bizhub, near his home at Yishun Street 22, which was also where the boy resided.

In mitigation, Samsugani’s lawyer, Criminal Legal Aid Scheme-assigned Sujatha, said her client is married with two children in India and is the sole supporter of his disabled wife. Samsugani had been working to ensure that his 20-year-old daughter had a sufficient dowry, but has been unable to do so since he was prosecuted.

Man fined $4,000 for punching cabby after refusing to pay fare

Yahoo News Singapore  16 April 2018

After vomiting in the back seat of the taxi, the man promised to pay the driver for the mess. Instead of keeping to his word, however, he tried to run away while the taxi was being cleaned.

Singapore permanent resident Gareth William David John, 43, did not pay his taxi fare either and even threw a punch at 49-year-old taxi driver Ng K L’s chest when the cabby tried to prevent him from leaving.

On 16 April, John, who is from the United Kingdom, was fined $4,000 on one count of voluntarily causing hurt to Ng.

According to court documents, John boarded Ng’s Mercedes taxi at Boat Quay at round 9.30pm on 19 August 2016. John had earlier been out drinking with his friends.

Burmese duo who attempted to kidnap friend's lover jailed, fined

Yahoo News Singapore   

17 April 2018

Two Burmese men who attempted to abduct and interrogate the alleged lover of their friend’s wife in a case that the prosecution called “abhorrent and horrifying” were each jailed and fined on 17 April.

Zaw Min Hlaing, a 40-year-old Singapore Permanent Resident, and Phyo Min Naing, 34, were jailed four years and three and a half months and four years and three months, respectively, for their roles in the case. Zaw was also fined $4,000 and disqualified from driving all classes of vehicles for a year for breaches of the Road Traffic Act and the Motor Vehicles Act. Phyo was fined $6,000.

The two pleaded guilty on 16 April after retracting an earlier plea that they made in November last year midway through their trial.

Phyo and Zaw were part of a group of four Myanmar nationals, who tried to kidnap Aye Maung Maung Thet, 29, in June 2015. The case had made headlines when police discovered the gruesome torture tools that the quartet planned to use on Aye, including a meat mincer, chainsaw, chopper and cable ties.

Myanmar national Win Kyaw Kyaw Aung, also known as Aung Aung and the mastermind of the plan, is still on the run as the 33-year-old left Singapore after the attempted abduction went awry.

Briton gets 4 weeks' jail over rush hour fight at Raffles Place MRT

Yahoo News Singapore   8 May 2018

A Briton who picked a fight with a fellow commuter during rush hour at Raffles Place MRT station and ended up fracturing the latter’s nose, was sentenced to four weeks’ jail by the State Courts on 8 May.

Former recruitment consultant Benjamin John Holman, 34, had earlier pleaded guilty to one count of voluntarily causing hurt to Ow, 30.

On the evening of 3 February 2017, Holman had been at a company event during which he consumed alcohol.

Later that night, Holman was waiting on the platform at Raffles Place MRT station when Ow unintentionally bumped into him. This led to a shouting match between the two, after which Ow turned around and continued walking towards the end of the station platform.

Holman then went after Ow and pushed him in his chest. The two argued again and Holman began punching Ow in the face despite Ow pushing Holman away and telling him to back off.

The altercation lasted around 20 seconds and the two were eventually separated by passers-by. The entire incident was caught on video by cameras at the station platform.

Ow suffered lacerations and a nasal bone fracture as a result of the incident.
