A man allegedly caught filming women inside a toilet at the Tampines NTUC Income building was charged in court on Tuesday (15 January).

Bryan Fang Zhongquan, 30, faces 14 counts of insulting the modesty of a woman and two counts of criminal trespass, committed between 25 and 26 December last year in the building located at 300 Tampines Ave 5.

It is unclear how many women Fang had filmed.

One of Fang’s offences was detailed in a Facebook post by an alleged victim who claimed Fang was caught trying to record her and other women while hiding in a toilet cubicle in the female toilet. The post, which was created on 26 December, was widely shared.

The police said that officers received a report that a man who was recording videos of women inside a female toilet cubicle had been detained at about 1.05am on that day. Police officers responded to the incident and arrested the man.

Preliminary investigations showed that the man may be involved in other similar cases, according to the police.

If Fang is found guilty of criminal trespass, he can be jailed up to three months, or fined up to $1,500, or both. If convicted of insulting the the modesty of a woman, he may be jailed up to one year and/or fined.
