A 27-year old man who suspected his wife was having an affair attempted to confront her after he saw her and 34-year old Desmond Koh Wee Boon, at a Fragrance Hotel in Kovan on April 28, 2019.
The woman’s husband waited at the back of the hotel with his own friend until the couple came out.
When his wife and the other man finally came out after an hour or two, and got into their own car, the husband confronted the pair by repeatedly hitting the windscreen and window, insisting they get out.
The alleged third-party drove off, with the woman’s husband clinging on to the door.
According to a Straits Times report, the husband while clinging on to the car shouted at him to stop but Koh continued driving for about 40m and then made a left turn into Kampong Sireh.
At this point, the man was flung onto the road and he suffered abrasions, including on his right palm and left elbow.
When Koh’s car had to stop behind a stationary vehicle, the younger man climbed onto its bonnet and clung to the top of the windscreen with his body stretched over the glass panel.
Despite this, Koh continued driving until they reached a Singtel building in Upper Serangoon Road where the man’s wife got out of the vehicle and told her husband to get off. The husband refused, the ST report shared.
Koh then continued driving and the passenger of a private-hire vehicle alerted the police.
At around 3.40am, officers managed to locate Koh’s car and stopped him in front of Block 323 Serangoon Avenue 3.
Koh is now out on bail of S$10,000 and was ordered to surrender himself at the State Courts on Oct 14 to begin serving his sentence.
For performing a rash act that endangered a life, he could have been jailed for up to six months and fined up to S$2,500. /TISG
