Hi everyone, please take note. My friend’s niece was nearly taken away last weekend at Vivocity Giant. Lucky his mother saw and shout at a Chinese lady and that lady walk away after saying sorry!
They made a police report and today police officer called them and after viewing the CCTV from Giant supermarket, they believe the Chinese lady did it purposely.
hey are tracking that woman now as we speak. When his mum first told him, he thought she was overreacting, perhaps that lady was holding the wrong kid. But police said that from the CCTV, she saw that the Chinese lady was following his niece for quite sometime and when she saw the maid looking at something, she hold his niece hand straight away and attempt to kidnap the little girl.
His niece is 5 years old. Stay vigilant people!
The Singapore Police Force responded to queries by members of the public on whether this incident took place.
“The Police confirm a report has been lodged and investigations are underway to ascertain the circumstances of the incident.
The Police would also like to advise the public against spreading unsubstantiated information which may generate unnecessary public alarm, causing fear and panic in the community. ”
The Police have thoroughly investigated into the case reported on 31 July 2016 where an attempted kidnapping of a child had purportedly taken place at VivoCity. The Police have established that it was not a case of attempted kidnapping. There are also no other reports made to the Police of such kidnapping incidents in other parts of Singapore.
The Police urge members of the public not to spread unsubstantiated information which may generate unnecessary public alarm. The Police take a very stern view against anyone who knowingly spread false information to mislead the public and will not hesitate to take action against such individuals.
