Singapore jails Myanmar helper who punched, bit 101-year-old woman for ‘no reason’, and taped her mouth to stop her screams

Aye Aye Aung, a 32-year-old Myanmar national, had been caring for the victim, who is on a feeding tube, for about three years. She pleaded guilty on Thursday to two charges of voluntarily causing hurt.

On February 27, the 43-year-old granddaughter of the victim received a WhatsApp message from her aunt, who said that she would be sending videos capturing Aung physically assaulting the woman.

This included closed-circuit camera (CCTV) footage dated February 23 and February 27 this year. The footage of around half an hour from February 23 showed Aung punching and pressing the elderly woman’s face.

She also punched her in the stomach, which caused the woman to wail in pain, and tied her hands to the bed railings, Assistant Public Prosecutor Chye Jer Yuan told the court.

Aung punched the woman’s head and stepped on her legs, then slapped her leg while putting on the woman’s nappies.

She then restrained the woman by kneeling on her chest with her full body weight placed on her, causing the elderly woman to again wail in pain.

The domestic helper slapped the victim’s buttocks and legs, before taping her mouth to stop her from wailing in pain.

Chye said the elderly victim was so afraid of the helper at this point that she raised her hands to defend herself.

Aung then pressed her face and knelt on the old woman’s chest, slapping her face repeatedly while trying to get her to keep quiet. The woman was repeating the phrase “very painful” in Cantonese.

She repeatedly slapped the woman’s face while changing her feeding tube, and the sounds of the slaps were audible in the footage, Chye told the court.

In footage dated four days later, Aung was seen pressing down on the elderly woman’s shoulder hard, such that she started to wail in pain.
