Dear A.S.S. Editor
A 23 year old unemployed monster, who disguised himself as a man and a father, has admitted in Singapore Courts to have repeatedly abused his then 10-month-old daughter, causing injuries including a fractured skull. The man, whose name cannot be revealed due to a gag order, committed the offences on Aug 9 and 10 last year.
The Court was also told that the man had a history of drug use since 2007. During the time of the offences, he had relapsed to his old habit and consumed drugs almost every day. He was also reported to be easily frustrated and vented his anger on his daughter and his wife, the baby’s mother. The baby was scared of the man and would burst into tears every time she saw him, the court was told.
On the morning of Aug 9 last year, the man threw a plastic bottle at his daughter’s face when she would not stop crying. He left the flat and was in a foul mood when he returned that evening as he had no money to buy drugs. He scolded his wife and startled their young daughter, who started to cry. Unable to pacify the baby, he then proceeded to forcibly shove the baby’s head against a wall, knowing it to be likely that the baby would sustain grievous hurt. The back of her head hit the wall and she fell to the mattress below, and was quickly carried away by her mother.
The man was carrying the baby at around 9 am the next day when he started to bite the child all over her left forearm and upper arm. The man also bit her ears at around 7pm that day. It was the wife’s father who alerted the police about the abuse done by the man.
Extensive injuries were noted all over the baby. Besides a fracture to the back of her skull, she also had multiple bruises and cuts to her face, torso and limbs.
