Some people’s fetishes are weirder than others.
On July 19 2019, a 61-year old man, Ahkubal Hussian, who stole more than 150 pieces of women’s underwear was sentenced to 30 weeks of jail.
The theft took place at Block 19 Balam Road on 13 and 15 May 2019. A 45-year old woman had discovered that $200 worth of her underwear that she had hung to dry at the corridor overnight had gone missing.
She then lodged a police report at MacPherson Neighbourhood Police Post at around 7.45pm on May 15 2019 after the second theft.
With the help of CCTV cameras which showed the main loitering around the housing estate at Balam Road, the police managed to track down the suspect and he was arrested the following day at his residence. There, they found 120 bras and 37 panties.
The man had pleaded guilty to two counts of theft as well as one count of public nuisance. Another two charges were also taken into consideration during the sentencing.
