26 year old Yap Jun Cheng was sentenced to 14 years jail and 22 strokes of the cane for raping a woman back in 2013. At the time, the Malaysian woman was only 20 years old and was in Singapore to look for a job and a rental flat. Yap was then serving his NS with the SCDF.
Yap had been talking to the victim on Facebook for some time before offering to show her around Singapore. Upon meeting for the first time, he coerced her to his house in Tampines where he raped her twice and threatened to kill her. He also asked her to cook for him without her pants. She tried to get away at one point but could not open the door as the door knob was broken.
She even had to have a meal with him after the incident before parting ways and returning to Malaysia. However, she came back on the same day after a relative urged her to make a police report.
Yap has 11 more charges against him. His lawyer said he was remorseful for his actions but the incident had reportedly left the victim deeply traumatised.
