 Singapore: A man was jailed and caned for molesting his sleeping 6-year-old nephew while his parents were away on 27 May.

The 21-year-old man was caught red handed by the boy’s parents who returned home to find him half naked behind their son, Yahoo News Singapore said.

Friday November 9, last week, the man was sentenced to three years’ jail and six strokes of the cane after proven guilty on two counts of molesting a person under 14.

On 27 May, the boy’s parents left the flat, leaving the man with their two sons. The man’s mother was in another room,

The six-year-old boy lay on a mattress and watched television until he fell asleep. The man then had the desire to touch the boy. He removed the boy’s pants and underwear before molesting the boy for about 20 minutes.

At this point, the boy’s parents returned and saw the scene. The man immediately stood to adjust his shorts, the news media said.
