According to 25-year old Yan Sihui, a private-hire vehicle driver outraged her modesty while she was asleep on the ride home in his car.
The student of LaSalle college said that she was on the way home from Bugis+ and that she had booked a RydePool car-sharing ride.
In her post on Facebook, she was told by the driver to sit in the front seat as there was another lady seated in the back seat of the car.
The lady was dropped off at her destination first.
A sleeping Yan was woken up when she felt something brushing against her right breast.
She wrote that she opened her eyes and saw the driver’s fingers on her breast, but was too stunned to move.
According to a report on Redwire Times, the driver then removed his fingers from her breast and said that something “dropped”.
Yan’s post has since been removed, and her Facebook account deactivated.
It was reported that the driver made a police report on the incident. When asked, he said, “Whether or not I was in the wrong, she should not put my personal details on the internet. It is very unfair to me. That’s why I lodged a police report”.
TISG has also reached out to Ryde for comment, and to verify the incident./TISG
