Tan Meng Long pleaded guilty to touching the victim’s breast on SBS Transit service 53 along Lorong Ah Soo on Oct 4, 2010.
The victim was sitting on the extreme right on the last row when Tan got up the bus and moved next to her. Pretending to read the papers, he stretched his hand to grab her breasts after which he continued ‘reading’ as if nothing has happened.
Feeling traumatized by the incident, the victim told her mother about it and a police report was lodged the next day and Tan was arrested by the police on Oct 28, 2010.
In mitigation, Tan’s lawyer said he committed the offence in the ‘spur of the moment’. It is not known when Tan became a Singapore PR.
