A 17-year-old boy was taken to the State Courts on Tuesday, 24 December, for allegedly molesting three women on the same day

According to Malay Mail, Khamalhan Kavnor Subramaniam was charged with molesting the three women, including two in their 70s, within a span of about four hours.

Khamalhan allegedly went to the eighth floor of a block of flats in Whampoa West on 16 December at 6pm

He then proceeded to touch a 79-year-old woman's private parts as she was squatting down along the corridor.

A few minutes later, the Malaysian teen was also accused of molesting a 49-year-old woman on the buttocks in a lift at the Bandemeer block of flats.

Straits Times reported that Khamalhan's last victim was a 73-year-old woman who he molested at a lift lobby on the seventh storey of another block nearby, just four hours after the first incident.
