I am a 24-year-old Vietnam girl living in Geylang. I came here a few months ago, hoping to start a new life and make some money.
I was working in a massage parlour when a fat oily man came in. He looked like he was in his 40s and he was so creepy. He asked me to give him a massage and I reluctantly agreed. But, when I started giving him the massage, he suddenly jumped out of the bed and started biting me.
I was so shocked and scared that I just ran out of the room crying.
The man followed me and kept trying to grab me, but I managed to escape. I was so scared that I ran home and locked myself in my room. I was too embarrassed to tell anyone what had happened and I was too scared to go back to work.
I eventually decided to go to the police and report what happened. They took me to a hospital to get checked and the doctors told me that I had been bitten by a human and that it had left some marks on my body.
I now understand why it is so important to speak up if something like this happens to you. I was too scared to do anything at the time, but I’m glad that I eventually found the courage to report what happened.
I still feel scared and anxious when I think about what happened. I try to stay away from Geylang and I avoid going out at night. I’m also more aware of my surroundings and I always keep my phone with me in case I need to call for help.
