A young woman woke up in the middle of the night on Sunday (Jul 24) to see a stranger in her bedroom at her Block 8 Eunos Crescent flat.
When he saw that the 27-year-old woman had seen him, the man choked her and hit her on the face.
A Stomper saw Criminial Investigaton Department (CID) officers at the block's carpark at 11am that day.
He noted that most of the officers were in the shophouse and that there was a Crime Scene Investigation van parked at the scene.
A police spokesperson informed Stomp that a 28-year-old man was arrested and is currently assisting with investigations.
He was caught after he answered a call made to the stolen phone.
The woman, who lives with her 76-year-old grandmother, suffered injuries and scratches on her face and was hospitalised.
She reportedly lost her credit card and mobile phone. He is also alleged to haven taken $500 cash from the elderly woman's purse.
Her grandmother was apparently sound asleep throughout the incident and only realised what happened when the police showed up.
