MAN ARRESTED AT NEX SUPERMARKET, TAKES UP SKIRT OF WOMAN WHO IS NEAR HIM

Singaporean Authorities Arrest 38-Year-Old Man for Alleged Upskirt Incident at Nex Supermarket

In a shocking turn of events, a 38-year-old man was taken into custody on June 4, 2024, following an alleged upskirt incident at a Cold Storage supermarket located in Nex, Singapore. The arrest came after a brave woman reported two separate incidents of voyeurism involving two different men on the same day, with the second incident occurring at the same supermarket.

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, took matters into her own hands by using herself as “bait” to capture video evidence of the alleged perpetrator in the act. She shared the footage on TikTok, which has since gone viral. The video shows the man, who was reportedly employed by an external vendor as a driver, squatting down in front of a nearby shelf while holding his phone with the rear camera facing upwards.

According to the woman, the incident occurred at around 5:30 pm when she was browsing flowers at the supermarket. She initially walked away but decided to return to “catch” the man in the act, using herself as bait. The video also captures the man moving his phone when another woman was nearby him.

The woman’s quick thinking and bravery led to the man’s arrest, with police receiving a call for assistance at 5:45 pm on the day of the incident. The authorities have confirmed that the 38-year-old man was arrested for alleged voyeurism.

In a statement, a spokesperson from Cold Storage’s parent company, DFI Retail Group, confirmed that the man was not a DFI employee but rather a driver employed by an external vendor. The spokesperson emphasized that ensuring the safety and well-being of customers is DFI’s top priority and that a Cold Storage team member who was onsite at the time of the incident is assisting law enforcement.

The woman’s courage in taking a stand against these alleged perpetrators is commendable, especially given that she had experienced a similar incident earlier that day. She had noticed a man following her up the escalator and from one store to another but did not have enough evidence to make a police report.

Under Singaporean law, offenders convicted of voyeurism can face up to two years’ jail, or a fine, or caning, or both. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of remaining vigilant and taking action against such unacceptable behavior.

As investigations continue, it is hoped that this incident will raise awareness about the need to protect individuals’ privacy and personal space, particularly in public areas. The bravery and quick thinking of the woman involved have sent a strong message that such behavior will not be tolerated, and those who engage in it will face the consequences.
