A 52-year-old postman has been charged with molesting young girls all across Singapore for the last 20 years.

Abdul Razak Hamid's offences started when he was 32 as he allegedly began molesting girls aged from five to 11 at staircase landings and void decks near to the letterboxes.

In some cases, he molested some of his victims more than once. In total, he was charged with 75 counts of molestation.

According to The Straits Times, Hamid committed his acts at random, striking at different housing estates in Singapore, including Katong, Yishun, Sengkang, Bedok, Circuit Road and Ang Mo Kio.

One of the fresh charges against him accused him of penetrating a six-year-old girl on a staircase landing in a block of Aljunied flats last May.

Hamid came forth and surrendered himself to the police on 27 April. He will undergo psychiatric examination at the Institute of Mental Health.

His next court hearing is 27 May.
