17-year-old PR convicted of alleged rape of 53-year-old woman
Mendel See, 17, has been charged for allegedly raping a 53-year-old lady. See also allegedly strangled the victim and held a chopper on her neck while he forced himself on her.
Prior to the alleged rape, Mendel See and two other accomplices, Benjamin Yong, 22, and Chow Chia Suan, 23, had reportedly robbed the victim in a flat at Yishun. $700 worth of phones, cigarettes, and cash were taken.
