A cabby who followed his passenger to her hostel in an attempt to rob her was jailed three years and ordered to be given six strokes of the cane.

Sazali Sujak, 32, who pleaded guilty, aborted his plan to rob Korean student Dan Bee Shin, 20, when she shouted for help.

The offence took place at her room in King Edward VII Hall, Kent Ridge Road, at about 3am.

Assistant Public Prosecutor Lydia Goh said the National University of Singapore student had taken Sazali's taxi to her hostel after a night out at St James Power Station. After paying the fare, she went up to her hostel. As she was about to close the door, Sazali pushed it open and she fell.

He then covered her mouth while she tried to break free. There was a scuffle and he fled when she shouted for help.

The victim suffered injuries to her right hand, bruising to the left cheek and her lips were cut.

For attempted robbery, the punishment is between two and seven years' jail and at least six strokes of the cane.
