SINGAPORE - A youth not only spat on his family's domestic helper and threw a metal mug at her face, leaving her with injuries, but also told her that she was "Only a maid, was poor and had no right to be in Singapore".

Ng Jia Sheng, 20, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to using criminal force on Ms Estabillo Soledad Agustin in 2018, as well as causing her grievous hurt by a rash act endangering her personal safety.

According to court documents, Ng and Ms Agustin were involved in a dispute at Ng's family home along Greenwood Avenue in Bukit Timah on June 7, 2018.

"During the altercation, the accused told the victim that she was only a maid, was poor and had no right to be in Singapore," Deputy Public Prosecutor Zhou Yihong told the court on Tuesday.

None of the items she threw hit Ng. Ms Agustin then went outside the gate of the house, and told another maid to call the police.
