22 year old Shawn Ho Wee Kiat was jailed for 6 weeks after he punched a 68 year old man Mr Tham Wye Mun, multiple times for allegedly molesting his girlfriend.
On 2 August 2015, Ho’s girlfriend Ms Choo Wan Sheng was queuing to buy food at a coffee shop when she felt the elderly man bump twice into her. When she returned home, she told her boyfriend and his mother, both of whom went to the coffeeshop to confront the alleged molester.
After throwing tea and noodles at one another, Shawn Ho rained punches on the elderly man and even when the man fell to the ground, continued to attack him. It was only with the intervention of passerby that the attack stopped.
Tham suffered a nose fracture and was given 3 days of MC.
