Police: Be alert of kidnappers in white van

KUALA LUMPUR: The public have been advised to be alert of kidnappers using a white van after an attempted kidnapping of a 10-year-old girl in Kampung Datuk Keramat here last Tuesday.

Wangsa Maju police chief Supt Mohamad Roy Suhaimi Sarif (pic) said the kidnapping attempt was done by four men, two of whom were wearing women's clothes, travelling in a white-coloured van.

"The victim is a student of Sekolah Rendah Agama Al Akram, Kampung Datuk Keramat, who was walking to school when the attempted kidnapping took place," he told Bernama.

He said in the 1.50pm incident, the two men in women's clothes suddenly approached the girl and tried to pull her into the van.

"One of the suspects pointed a knife at the girl, but she fought back, kicking and punching their faces, causing them to get back into the van and speed off," he said.

Supt Roy Suhaimi said the girl then ran into the school compound and recounted the incident to a teacher, who lodged the police report.

He said they were unable to get the plate number of the van as there was no closed-circuit television camera at the scene.

He said the teacher also lodged another report claiming that another kidnapping attempt involving a student of the school had also taken place on Aug 5.

"The attempt involved two men on a motorcycle who tried to abduct one of two sisters, aged seven and 10, who were walking to school at about 1.50pm.

"The pillion rider grabbed the younger girl by the hand, but she fought back and screamed, causing him to let go and leave the scene," he said, adding that no arrests had been made in the two cases so far, but police had indeed increased patrols in the area. – Bernama
