Another suspected ‘kidnapping’ case: 10 year old boy almost led away by stranger to van

Posted by temasektimes on March 24, 2012

One day after a suspected kidnapping case happened in Ang Mo Kio Hub, a 10 year old boy was almost led away by a stranger outside his primary school!

The shocking incident happened along Simei Street 5 this Monday. A 59 year old aunty brought her ten year old grandson to school and left him at the entrance:

A few minutes later, she saw him being led away by a woman in her 40s towards a van.  When confronted, the woman said it is a case of ‘mistaken identity’ and walked away as if nothing happened.

A police report was subsequently lodged, but the grandmother was told by the police officers that they never received such ‘complaints’ before.

The ‘modus operandi’ appears to be similar to a case in Hong Kong two weeks ago where a child was almost led away by a PRC woman to a van outside his primary school:

Meanwhile, there are no other statements from the police yet except the one urging Singaporeans not to spread ‘unsubstantiated information’ which can cause unnecessary ‘alarm’.

    “A police report was subsequently lodged, but the grandmother was told by the police officers that they never received such ‘complaints’ before.”

    Uh huh. Never received such complaints before. Wake the fuck up lah SPF! You want there to be a first time before you do something is it?

    Bunch of jiak liao bee.

    Only know how to eat snake and laze around.

    Section 362 of the Penal Code states that:
    Abduction
    362. Whoever by force compels, or by any deceitful means induces any person to go from any place, is said to abduct that person.

    Section 363A of the Penal Code states that:
    Punishment for abduction
    363A. Whoever abducts any person shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 7 years, or with fine, or with caning, or with any combination of such punishments.

    “FIRST SCHEDULE Tabular Statement of Offences under the Penal Code” of the Criminal Procedure Code 2010 indicated that Penal Code section 363A “Abduction” is a seizable and non bailable offence.

    Section 66(1) and 66(2) of the Criminal Procedure Code 2010 states that:
    Arrest by private person
    66.
    —(1) Any private person may arrest any person who, in his view or presence, commits an arrestable non-bailable offence, or who has been proclaimed as an offender under section 88.
    (2) The private person must, without unnecessary delay, hand over the arrested person to a police officer or take him to a police station.

    Can any law expert confirm that a member of public has the right to detain such an offender whom in his view committed the offence of Abduction?

    This is horrible! The thought of what might happen to the boy if those things succeeded…

  4. Whether true or not, always watch out for our little ones.

  5. Not sure if I should treat this piece of news seriously now that there are several inaccuracies. Firstly, I myself live in Simei Street 5 and there is no primary or secondary school in the vicinity.

    The only primary school on this housing estate is streets away, that is located near to the MRT. On the opposite side. The ONLY access to the school is the main gate which is near to the MAIN road where traffic is always busy.

    So if the boy is being led to the van allegedly by a PRC woman, the van if assumedly parked by the MAIN road where it is the ONLY access to the school, the van would HAVE BLOCKED THE TRAFFIC.

    Or are some you commenters going to rebut that the van could be in the school compound? But then there are security guards now in every school in Singapore.

    Of all the students that come and go, the PRC kidnappers would target this 10-year-old boy SPECIFICALLY? What is so “special” about this boy that he was picked from the crowd of students?

    Irresponsible journalism or a fictitious story?

      Please read the chinese version i.e. the chinese newspapers. The newspapers DID not say OUTSIDE school – it said ON the way to school. I don’t understand how the translation was done… Maybe the boy was extra cute or couldn’t it be just some random pick?

        To be fair, the chinese newspaper article here is scanned and quality is not readable. Thus it is difficult to figure out the content.

    Is information being suppressed?

    Dear fellow Singaporeans for the last 10 years or so we can see how the civil service & policies crafted by the government is favoring foreigners over Singaporeans. There is a sense of double standards as if if you are a foreigner you are automatically a talent, if you are a local Singaporean you are discriminated while jobs, education scholarships etc at our expense is given away to foreigners.

    In recent days the above mentioned just got worst as some foreigners brought crime along to our Singapore. Cases such as the 24 year old PRC who raped a 13 year old girl.

    Now there has been cases of potential kidnap of young children and the police dismissed it by “warning Singaporeans not to spread rumors”

    We need to come together, as many of us in huge numbers, to demand transparency from government, the police, immigration authorities and hold them accountable for the current sad state of events our country is in.

    Come rally with me for “A Rally for Singaporeans”
    Venue: Hong Lim Park

    Our Useless SPF are behaving like the china 公安liao, protecting their own PRCs n do not even do any investigations all….. Remember your pays are from our taxpayers money.

      The translation here is definitely incorrect. There’s only one primary school in simei but it is not along street 5.

    Once, i saw a bunch of secondary students smoking, gambling and improper behavior under the void deck. Called the police. Our neighborhood police`s exact words “Sir, you can bring this matter to their school instead of calling us’….

    i am a 10 years old boy i leave in ang mo kio i go and play with my friend at the basketball court but nothing but if this kidnapping thing is really happening the police should find him

    @ Krieve.

    Your comment “Called the police. Our neighborhood police`s exact words “Sir, you can bring this matter to their school instead of calling us’….”

    Strange. I had a problem with Hai Sing Catholic School’s students, in Pasir Ris, I went to the school office to complain. The school staff told me to call the police, instead, as it is out of the school compound. So the school mentality is to “tai-chi” to SPF and SPF standard op is to “tai-chi” to the school.

    Win-win situation for both of them. Guess who is the loser.

    @Eldwin Tan..it’ll be under citizen’s arrest.

  14. My niece was 6 when she was almost kidnapped by a PRC lady at Kovan Heartland Mall. She was standing next to her mother when the lady tried to drag her out of the shop. She struggles to break free from her abductor without much success. Luckily, her mother saw the lady and stopped her.

    When the PRC lady was being questioned, she claims that it was a mistaken identity and she scurried off.
