A couple were allegedly caught “doing things” of a sexual nature at a Karaoke room in Bugis on Thursday afternoon. When the couple were busted after a staff member spotted them behaving strangely, the man held the karaoke room door shut and pleaded with the staff to allow his companion to “put on her clothes” first.
Krist, an employee of MANEKINEKO karaoke at Bugis+ shopping centre, shared with an online publication that the couple are repeat customers who are known to visit in the afternoons, which are less crowded. Krist remembers that the couple usually book karaoke for two hours, between 11am and 2pm, but always leave before their time is up.
That Thursday, the couple arrived at the outlet while the shop was running a $10 for two-hour karaoke session promotion and were assigned to Room 5, which was located close to the cashier.
Krist recounted: “After they went in, they immediately switched off the lights so it was quite dark. I didn’t suspect anything because that’s what people usually do.”
Krist only discovered something fishy was happening about 40 minutes later when she did a spot check: “I have come across some couples engaging in sex acts in our rooms before, so I’m usually more vigilant and will do spot checks every so often.”
When the employee peered into Room 5 via the glass window panel on the door, she saw the woman bent over the sofa: “I know she was wearing a skirt but I couldn’t see if she had it on. I was sure that she was wearing her shirt though. She was just facing the sofa, bent over 45 degrees. I could not see where the guy was at all.
“I immediately shouted at them and tried to push the door open. The guy rushed to the door and forced it shut after I shouted. He kept pleading with me to let his companion wear her clothes first.”
Krist quickly grabbed her phone to capture a video of the incident. The Independent will not re-publish the video due to its nature.
In the video, a woman can be seen tidying up her shirt as her back faces the camera, while the man begs: “(Shes’s) putting on her clothes now.” When Krist threatens that she will call the police, the couple hurry out of the room and quickly exit the outlet.
Krist shared: “I wanted to reach into the crack of the door, but I was worried that the man would slam it shut and injure my fingers, so I took the video from outside the room instead. We need to teach this kind of people a lesson.”
