Property agent Seow Wai Hoe went to the police first and on Monday, a district court sentenced Kathijah Bibi Abdullah to three months in jail. The 27-year-old pleaded guilty to committing criminal intimidation by threatening to injure the reputation of Seow. The court heard that he called a chat line on 6pm on June 26 and got to know Kathijah. They exchanged telephone numbers and planned to meet later that evening. At about 8.30pm, he picked her up along Bugis Street in his car. Mr Seow, 41, then drove to Kent Ridge Park, where they chatted and had sex.
