A 19-year-old teenager, who cannot be named as he was below 18 years old when some of the offenses were allegedly committed, was hauled to a district court on March 5 for charges including performing an obscene act on a cat.

The teenager was captured on video allegedly performing the obscene act outside an HDB flat in Senja Road. The incident took place on April 8, 2023, and a 56-second clip of the footage went viral after being captured by a nearby camera.

In addition to the charge of performing an obscene act in public, the teenager is also facing charges of harassment, assault, and theft. The offenses include stealing a wallet containing $10 in cash at a school on Jan 10, 2022, and stealing a comb and a power bank with charging cables at a void deck of another Senja Road block of flats, according to The Straits Times.

Furthermore, the teenager allegedly used vulgar language to abuse another person on March 31, 2022, and is accused of assaulting the same victim on multiple occasions in November 2022 and February 2023.

The teenager, who turned 18 in July 2022, is expected to plead guilty on April 16.

If convicted of performing an obscene act in public, he could face up to three months in jail and a fine. For each count of assault, he could face up to two years in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.
