Upset that his colleague rejected his advances, the spurned man collected his faeces and rubbed it over the woman’s mouth.
Singaporean Mohamad Razli Abdul Razak, 28, was sentenced on Thursday (10 January) by the state courts to one week’s jail on one count of criminal force on a 49-year-old woman.
The two had met in May 2017 through their company Eastern Green, where Razli worked as a forklift driver and the woman worked as a packer.
Razli became interested in the woman and started courting her. However, the woman rejected his advances. Razli refused to accept the rejection and the two got into an argument.
Dispute led to attack
On 1 June 2017, after one of their disputes, Razli told the woman that he would “show his true colours and reveal his evil side the following day”, said DPP Quek Jin Feng.
The next day, Razli collected his faeces in a plastic bag. He knew that the woman would be doing her second job as a part-time cleaner for a town council and went in search of her.
At about 6.40am, Razli spotted the woman cleaning a rubbish bin at Block 857, Jurong West Street 81. He grabbed her from behind before rubbing the plastic bag containing his faeces on her face around her mouth.
The woman’s face and body were stained by the faeces as a result. Nevertheless, the woman broke free and Razli fled.
DPP Quek asked for a jail term of two weeks, describing the act as “disgusting” and “particularly egregious” as the faces was rubbed around the woman’s mouth.
“There was a high level of premeditation, he threatened to show his true colours the night before… He knew where she would be when he sought her out,” said the DPP. He added that Razli was released from prison in May 2016 but reoffended for current offence in June 2017, showing a “proclivity” towards criminal activity.
In mitigation, Razli, who was not represented, asked for leniency, saying that he was supporting an ailing mother and still paying for his flat. He added that he was remorseful.
