A judge yesterday called for psychiatric reports on a decorator who molested a mentally handicapped woman with the social maturity of a 12-year-old. The woman was 18 and under the care of a social worker when she met Cheung Yiu-tong, now 24, through a girlfriend whose home Cheung was painting. Born with a mild mental deficiency, the woman could be easily misled with offers of food or similar bribes, the Court of First Instance heard. 'She is easily approached by strangers, not understanding their true intent,' prosecutor Dee Crebbin said. Charges of rape and attempted rape were dropped and Cheung pleaded guilty to attempted unlawful sexual intercourse with a mentally handicapped person. He admitted speaking to the woman on the phone last May after an introduction by her friend. The friend had then given him the woman's number and he had called her every day to flirt. The next month Cheung asked the woman to meet him and she agreed because she felt 'soft-hearted' towards him, the court was told. She was then led to Cheung's flat in Shamshuipo. He emerged from the bathroom in just his shorts, sexually molested her and tried several times to have sex with her before giving up and playing video games, Ms Crebbin said. Cheung was arrested on June 5 and admitted having fondled the woman. He told police he had stopped when he realised she did not like it and got dressed again. Mr Justice Michael Burrell adjourned sentencing until March 9.
