14 YR OLD BOY RAPIST TO BE TRIED AS ADULT FOR RAPING UNDERAGED GIRL AT LIFT LOBBY

In what is believed to be the youngest juvenile to be charged for rape in Singapore, a 14 year old boy has been charged with raping a 16 year old at a lift lobby and on top of that is also accused of molesting a 21 year old woman.

The boy was first charged in Youth Court last July for theft and housebreaking offences. However, while out on bail, he allegedly molested the buttocks of a woman and a month later, raped a girl twice. He did so by threatening to knife her if she did not lie down and he violated her with his finger and comb.

He is now facing two counts each of rape and of sexual assault by penetration of the 16-year-old.

Each charge carries a maximum of 20 years in jail and caning. His case has since been transferred to the High Court, which has wider sentencing powers and can impose corporal punishment on a person aged between 14 and 16. If the boy is convicted, he can be caned, but with a light rattan.

The AGC said the offences of rape and sexual assault by penetration can be tried only in the High Court. The AGC applied for the remaining charges to be transferred so they can be dealt with together.

The boy also faces some less serious charges for theft.
