SINGAPORE: A 20-year-old woman was on Monday jailed 22 months by a district court for being part of a savage attack on a French national and for taking drugs.
Nur Azilah Ithnin admitted to the offences earlier this month.
According to investigations, Azilah -- a student at the Institute of Technical Education at the time -- attacked 53-year-old product line manager Dominguez Didier Moise at his Marina Bay residence in March this year.
She became involved with the victim through a close friend, Nuurul Aliyyah Abdul Talib, who was working as a prostitute for Malcolm Graham Head and his girlfriend Veronica Patricia Rio.
Both Head and Rio allegedly ran an online vice ring, the second to surface since the high-profile online vice ring involving 51 men broke last year.
The court heard that on March 3, Aliyyah was to have provided sexual services to Mr Dominguez for S$280.
Worried for Aliyyah's safety, Azilah and three accomplices accompanied her to the appointment in case she needed help.
After a misunderstanding broke out between Aliyyah and Mr Dominguez over the type of sexual services that would be rendered, Aliyyah called her accomplices for help.
The group, made up of Azilah, Head, Rio and Aliyyah's brother Ahmad Habiibul Hakim Assalafi, showed up at the apartment and assaulted Mr Dominguez, punching and kicking him.
They also hit his forehead thrice with a wine bottle opener.
The entire attack left him with facial fractures.
Azilah admitted to kicking Mr Dominguez twice on his body, and holding on to a knife in Mr Dominguez's home.
She also pleaded guilty to one charge of taking the drug Ice.
For voluntarily causing grievous hurt, Azilah could have been jailed 10 years and fined.
The cases involving the others in the attack are still pending.
