Alleged rapist said he just wanted to rob victim
The man who allegedly raped a woman after giving her a lift in his car told the police in a statement on May 7, 2013 he just wanted to rob her.
Haliffie Mamat, 24, had said he didn’t know why he had sex with the 34-year-old woman.
He is now on trial for allegedly raping the woman on a bridge along Kallang Bahru Road between 6.30am and 6.45am on May 4, 2013.
He is also accused of robbing her of a Louis Vuitton handbag, two mobile phones, about $300 in cash and a bottle of Bvlgari perfume.
His ex-wife, Ms Yunizar Hambali, took the stand on Wednesday (May 20) and said she had a quarrel with Haliffie the day before the alleged offence over financial matters.
She said she searched his car two days later and found a bottle of perfume in a small storage compartment under the steering wheel.
