Mentally ill man gets 12 months of mandatory treatment order for stabbing dog

Published

on

On 8th February 2018, Chong Choom Kiat, 40, was sentenced to 12 months of mandatory treatment order (MTO) and barred from owning animals for a year.

The MTO, a community sentencing option for offenders suffering from mental conditions, compels Chong to undergo treatment in lieu of jail time. The Institute of Mental Health had diagnosed him with what is known as an “adjustment disorder with depressed mood”.

The part-time chef was in a heated argument with his 23-year-old girlfriend on 30th October 2016 and later commented that Chong’s female Maltese dog, Sweet Sweet, was making a lot of noise.

Chong then went on to use a shirt to cover the dog’s head and attempted to suffocate it. Realising that the dog was still kicking and alive, he used a leash to further tighten the shirt that was wrapped around its head.

If that’s not violent and inhumane enough, Chong continued to stab the dog at its thorax region numerous time with a fishing knife, while holding the helpless dog down.

Sensing the bloodied dog’s death, Chong threw the dog, together with the shirt and dog leash into the common rubbish chute of his block at Hougang Avenue 6’s void deck.

Shortly after the incident, his girlfriend lodged a police report at Hougang Neighbourhood Police Centre against him that same day. The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority’s officers then arrived at the block and recovered the dog’s carcass, the shirt and the leash.

Chong, who is represented by pro bono lawyer Diana Ngiam under the Enhanced Guidance for Plea Scheme, had admitted to ill-treating the Maltese between 4 and 5pm that day.

For animal cruelty, Chong could have been fined up to $15,000 and/or jailed for up to 18 months under the Animal and Birds Act.

Man molests girl on the bus then ask for a second chance as he had another molestation case

Louisa Lee shared a post on social media claiming that she got molested on the bus by this unknown man.

This happened on Sunday (20 May) morning.

Lee shouted and alerted the bus captain and told the bus captain to call the police.

According to her, this man panicked when he realised that the bus captain refused to open the doors to let him out and he also kneeled down and even said that he had another molestation case.

This is her full post:

“Early in the morning, I got molested in the bus by this pervert. Thankfully the bus captain saw what he did also as well. No, do not keep quiet, I shouted at him and asked to report it to the police. Perverts like this should just be kept away and not even given a chance to be outside.

He was panicking and asking the driver to open the door, he kneeled down and even said he had another molestation case. So yes if you have a molestation case, don’t you dare to molest more people. Make sure you are jailed for a Long Long time with canning.

This photo was taken when I was outside the bus to stay away from him because he was getting aggressive to get close to me.

He was “scolding” me, but the other passengers was scolding him. I am so Glad that even as strangers, the bus driver, some passengers protected me and asked if I was okay.

Girls, please do not keep quiet and let this kind of perverts go scot-free”

Comments from netizens

Netizens applauded Louisa’s actions by standing up for herself but there are some who blame her for her appearance.

Woman cooks free food for strangers during Ramadan but no one shows up

A woman started cooking for strangers and serving it to people as they break their Ramadan fast. However, no one showed up.

Recently, a girl posted a picture on Instagram letting her followers know that her mother was cooking and giving away food to strangers for Iftar, or the breaking of fast, during Ramadan.

She added that if people had no one to break their fast with or if they were in the area, they were more then welcome to drop by and break their fast with her mother.

However, in what would seem to be a case of poor publicity, no one showed up.

Her daughter posted a follow-up picture letting people know that no one turned up and encouraged more people to support her mother and to not let her efforts go to waste.

This was picked up by friends such as @nvramalinz who reposted the picture and encouraged their followers to bring their family and friends to support her and to make sure that the food and effort did not go to waste.

If you would like to support her, head down to Jalan Kayu Block 446A during Iftar. She will be serving food every day except Saturdays and Sundays.
