The former tattoo artist found out his fiancee had sex with her cousin when she was 14, about five years ago.

Furious, the 27-year-old man confronted the cousin and assaulted him.

He made the man kneel down and apologise to his fiancee. He also burned him with a lighted cigarette and lighter.

We are not naming the parties involved as the police are investigating the alleged underage sex offence.

On Feb 20, Peter (not his real name), a former tattoo artist, contacted Alan, 23, (not his real name) through Facebook.

The court heard that Peter had found out his fiancee had had underage sex with her cousin, Alan, and he threatened to make a police report if Alan did not meet him.

The men arranged to meet at the void deck of Block 549, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10, on Feb 22.

At about 2.40am, Alan arrived, followed by Peter and his fiancee.

Peter told Alan to kneel down and apologise to his fiancee, who was seated on a stone seat next to a table.

When Alan knelt down, Peter kicked and punched him, smashing his spectacles.

Thinking they heard the police arrive, Peter pulled Alan to the side of the road and they took a taxi to Block 501, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5.

There, Peter continued to assault Alan, hitting him on his face and body and kneeing him in the ribs.

He also burned Alan's left ear and fingers with a lighted cigarette.

Peter and his fiancee then left.

Alan called for an ambulance and he was taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. He had a fractured left nasal bone, a swollen lip and a bloodied eye and was hospitalised for two days.

COMPENSATION

Yesterday, Peter was jailed for six months and ordered to be given two strokes of the cane. He must also pay Alan about $5,600 in compensation.

In mitigation, defence lawyer Choo Si Sen referred to a psychiatric report that said his client had been recovering from polysubstance dependence and suffered from anti-social personality disorder and borderline personality disorder.

Peter's fiancee had also just given birth on Oct 4, Mr Choo said. He asked for a four-week deferment of sentence.

District Judge Lim Tse Haw disagreed, but allowed Peter to start serving his sentence from next week.

The New Paper understands that investigations into Alan's alleged sexual offence are ongoing.
