Second-year Junior College student Liu Yiming asked an eight-year-old girl to help him with a survey. The problem was, there was no survey. After luring his victim to the second storey of the clubhouse in SAFRA Yishun, the 18-year-old asked the girl what she was wearing. "Stockings" was her last words before the accused touched the girl's right knee and molested her. He apparently stopped when he "realised that what he did was wrong".
In court, Liu, who was there for his school's co-curricular activity, said he felt an urge to touch the girl after seeing her in her ballet attire. He was eventually sentenced to 18 months' probation.
