In what is definitely going down as one of the biggest self-ownage in Singapore for quite some time to come, a man was filmed pretending not to film a woman sitting opposite him on the North East Line MRT train when he so obviously was.
The video and photograph of the man was shared in the following Facebook post on May 15, 2017:
According to the post, the incident took place on Saturday, May 13, at around 7.40pm.
The man had allegedly chose to sit opposite the woman who boarded the train at Outram MRT towards HarbourFront. He then whipped out his camera and proceeded to film the woman sitting opposite him.
Unbeknownst to him, the reflection behind him clearly showed he was on creep mode and filming the woman.
The post said the police were called and the MRT staff alerted.
Here is the full post in case you cannot read it:
This is a video that I had recorded on 13th May 2017 Saturday at 7.40pm a minute or so after I had boarded the train at Outram mrt. I was heading towards Harbourfront to meet a friend. This guy quickly plonked himself on the seat opposite mine though it wasn’t as if the train was crowded and he had to race to get a seat. I was seated in the 2-seater located at the far ends of the carriage. He then proceeded to whip out his phone and I think the rest speaks for itself once you view the video.
The dumbass didn’t realise his folly obviously. I made my own recording of him but understandably lost my temper afterwards when confronting him over his actions. The mrt staff were most helpful and the SPF arrived at the scene within minutes. Upon further investigation this chap was found to be in possession of similar videos though I am told they were rather obscene in nature of unsuspecting victims.
This man’s name is Suraj. This asshole holds an employment pass. He had a range of excuses for his deplorable actions. His last feeble attempt of an apology was that ‘I was like his sister’.
I am highlighting this episode to the public in general to serve as a deterrent for other such assholes. Please always remain aware of your surroundings and never be afraid to speak out against such acts that may be committed against you or others around you.
You don’t have to be a victim of your circumstances. Ever.
