As parents, we should be aware of our surroundings when we are bringing our children for a walk at a mall or any public place and holding onto their hands. The last thing we want would be for our children to go missing.
Recently, a TikTok user raised the alarm about an alleged kidnap case that took place in the Skytropolis indoor theme park at Resorts World Genting.
According to TikTok user @alfitry_azmi52, he and his friends had a terrifying experience when his friends’ child almost got kidnapped by 2 foreign women roaming around the theme park.
He said that fortunately, he and his friend were quick to notice something wasn’t right with the 2 women when they approached his friend’s wife, thus, preventing the tragedy of their children being taken away forcefully.
The viral TikTok video showed 2 foreign women roaming around the indoor theme park with one of them wearing a telekung (prayer veil). According to the user, the one in telekung is Pakistani while the other is Indonesian.
He explained that the incident happened while he and his friend went on a roller-coaster ride and the friend’s wife stayed behind to look after their son and belongings. Shortly after, they noticed that the suspicious women approached the wife.
They appeared to be in a hurry and one of them grabbed the child’s hand before running away. The friend quickly got off the ride and rush to help his wife.
The user said that as there are no security guards around the theme park, they had to reach out to police officers at the casino who then escorted the foreign women out of the theme park for questioning.
The user also claimed that the women tried to cast a spell on the wife but it wasn’t successful.
Meanwhile, the incident has alerted the police and they have since launched an investigation about the claims of attempt kidnapping.
According to Bentong police chief Superintendent Zaiham Mohd Kahar, the theme park’s security had lodged a report at about 8.16 pm on Monday (19 September) regarding the viral video.
“The Bentong Police also confirmed that there has been no report lodged by the involved parties yet,” Zaiham said in a statement, adding that they will record the user’s statement to assist in the investigation.
He also called on the public not to speculate on the matter and allow the police to conduct their investigation.
