The Singapore police has issued a media release warning Singaporeans not to spread rumors about the suspected ‘abduction’ case allegedly by a PRC couple in Ang Mo Kio Hub which has gone viral in cyberspace.
The shocking incident was first shared on Facebook by Allison Goon who wrote that she saw a PRC lady leading her son away after she turned around to throw rubbish while watching a magic show at Ang Mo Kio Hub on Sunday.
When confronted by her, the PRC lady simply claimed that she held the wrong child and then walked away with a PRC man as if nothing as happened:
The mother said her son later told her that the woman had told him she would bring him back to his home.
A police report has since been lodged and the police is currently looking into the matter. In its statement, police said they are investigating into a report that a child was in the company of a stranger.
As it is still under ‘investigation’, the police now urge the public not spread and circulate ‘unsubstantiated information’ as this may cause unnecessary ‘alarm’.
