Man who allegedly touched himself in front of women on bus assisting with police investigations

A man who allegedly performed a lewd act in front of three women on a bus is currently assisting with investigations, the police told Stomp.

Facebook user Jorene Ng had recounted the "disgusting act" that she and her sisters encountered on bus service 225G on Monday (March 29), at around 12.05am.

"We were the first few to enter the bus and he followed after, choosing the seat directly opposite us," she wrote. "He then put his hands in his pants and [proceeded to touch] himself in front of us (looking directly at us)."

Ng said the incident left her and her sisters feeling traumatised and unsafe.

The trio snapped photos of the man by pretending to take a selfie, Ng told Shin Min Daily News.

She added: "It's our first time experiencing something like this. We did not know what to do and still have lingering fears."

Foodpanda had earlier told Stomp in a statement: "The photos circulated were disturbing.

"Upon our internal investigation, we can confirm that the individual captured in the photo was a former employee dismissed a month ago.

"We have also reached out to Ms Ng to offer our support over this shocking incident."

In response to a Stomp query, the police confirm that a report was lodged and a 29-year-old man is assisting with investigations.
