Poly student jailed and caned for raping pen pal, 13, in her bedroom while friends and family are at home

Poly student jailed and caned for raping pen pal, 13, in her bedroom while friends and family are at home

THEY started out as pen pals through a column in a teen magazine before becoming friends. But once he started sending her sending her lewd text messages and insisting to meet her, the 13-year-old tried to cut all ties with him. Instead of backing down, Samuel Wang Jian Bin, a 24-year-old polytechnic student who was trained as a commando during national service, forced his way into her flat, where he groped and raped her while her younger brother had piano lessons. He refused to stop even when on the back with a martial arts spear. Yesterday, Wang pleaded guilty to one count of statutory rape. He was sentenced to 13 years' jail and 15 strokes of the cane. Read the full story in The New Paper today (July 30).
