Singapore professor caught stealing panties and bras from dorm
SINGAPORE, Saturday (Reuters) - A Singaporean professor who nicked bras and panties has pleaded guilty to stealing women's underwear from a university dormitory, a local newspaper reported today.
The 39-year old man -- an associate professor in a Chinese university -- was charged for taking women's underwear from a university hostel's clothes-line last December, the Straits Times reported.
The Singaporean professor, who teaches in China, was in the city-state for his leave when he committed the crime. He was caught by a dormitory security guard who found female undergarments in his haversack.
“I have heard stories before about underwear being stolen, but I never thought it would happen to me,” a victim, who was not named, was quoted as saying.
A lawyer for the professor was reported as saying his client suffers from a psychiatric disorder and has been taking women's underwear since he was 14.
