Ex-Grab Driver 47-year-old Tan Yew Sin previously faced charges of attempted rape, sexual assault and outrage of modesty for the fiasco that happened in his vehicle.
Tan contested the charges back in July 2021 and earlier today, he was cleared of three charges with incluing charges of attempted rape, sexual assault and outrage of modesty
A 19-years-old girl who was drunk initiated a kiss with the grab driver, this sends a wrong signal to the driver thinking that she wants to “do it with him”.
The incident happened back on 19 May 2018, the girl just finished 5 pints of beer with her friend and went home, Tan picked her up at Seletar Aerospace Park.
During the journey home the teen kept crying, after arriving at the girl’s home the girl suddenly leave the vehicle and sat near the compound. The Grab driver claimed that he was worried and went to “comfort” the sobbing teen.
She invited the girl back to the vehicle and gave her “emotional support”.
He decided to look through the girl belongings hoping to find her phone so that he look for someone she can call to bring her home
“As I was searching her bag, she rested her head on my shoulder. Then I couldn’t find the handphone, but I found her IC in her wallet. So then I took note of the address, After I put the IC back in the bag, I turned around and the next thing I know, we end up kissing.”
He claimed that the girl initiated the kiss and even started to remove her underwear and spread her legs as if “inviting him in”. He tried to do so but fail to sustain an erection.
Tan will be back in court for trial at a later date, If Tan is convicted of attempted rape he could be jailed for up to 20 years, fined and/or caned.
