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

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’.
