A timber manager was sentenced to nine years' jail and 16 strokes of the cane for a brutal attempt to rape a woman guest of a five-star hotel.

At about midnight on Sept 17 last year, Ho Wee Fah, 36, barged into the hotel room of the victim, a foreigner here on business, who was staying at the Sheraton Towers Hotel. He threatened to kill her if she did not give in, then he undressed her by force.

She screamed and put up a fierce struggle, until she had fallen to the ground several times. Ho stopped only when hotel staff knocked on the door.

He warned the woman not to open the door and went into the toilet to get dressed. But she quickly put on her clothes and opened the door to let the hotel staff in.

Ho tried to flee, but was caught by the hotel's security staff, after a chase.

The High Court heard yesterday that the woman's ordeal, lasting about 20 minutes, would have continued if other hotel guests had not heard her and called for help.

Married with three daughters, Ho broke down and cried yesterday after his sentence was passed.
