S’porean teen gets man to rape girl

SINGAPORE: A 16-year-old girl instigated an unknown man to rape a girl who had bad-mouthed her previously.

When the rape failed, Nor Azura Omar forced the 13-year-old girl to have oral sex with the man and even recorded the obscene act with her cellphone.

All this took place at a staircase landing of a block of flats in Woodlands on June 28 last year.

A district court heard that Azura had planned to “break the virginity” of the girl and wanted to take revenge on her for having badmouthed her previously.

She called a chatline and managed to arrange for the unknown man to meet her at a block of flats in Woodlands Avenue 1.

Over the phone, she told him to “break” the victim’s virginity.

The victim overheard this but was afraid to make an escape as she feared that Azura would beat her up, said Deputy Public Prosecutor Diane Tan.

Initially, Azura’s accomplices, all between 12 and 15, did not know about her plan.

Surrounded by Azura and the group, the victim was forced to lie down on the ground. She then instigated the man to rape her but he failed.

Unhappy, Azura forced the victim to perform oral sex on the man.

After the man, who is at large, had left, Azura remained unhappy that her plan did not materialise. She felt that the victim had not learnt her lesson.

The DPP said she then slapped and kicked the victim, who was also attacked by the rest of the group.

After inflicting group violence, Azura decided to humiliate the victim further by forcefully stripping her of her shirt and bra, exposing her breasts to public view.

On Friday, Azura admitted to five charges including one of misappropriating her friend’s bag on July 24.

Community Court judge May Mesenas called for a reformative training report on Azura before deciding what to do on Feb 20. She also wanted a psychological assessment on Azura’s risk of re-offending. -- ANN/ The Straits Times
