Police are looking for a woman who escaped from an Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) area by slipping underneath the barbed wire placed around Bandaran Berjaya.
The area is among those placed under the EMCO until July 25.
A 0.31-second Tik Tok video which was taken at 8.30pm yesterday showed the woman wearing a white shirt and jeans crawling under the wire and fleeing to the next building.
The man who recorded the action could be heard saying in the footage that it was dangerous and that assistance would be given during the EMCO.
It is learned that the man had also warned the woman not to escape and told her food baskets had been distributed to residents in the area.
Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Hazani Ghazali said they had received a report after the footage that went viral on social media.
He added police are tracking the woman down and urged those with information to come forward to assist the investigation.
