SHAH ALAM: After pressure from the authorities, a man who allegedly kidnapped his former girlfriend and her son surrendered himself to the police.
In a statement, Shah Alam OCPD Asst Comm Iqbal Ibrahim said that the incident, which has gone viral, started after the suspect kidnapped the two in front of a kindergarten in U12 here.
“The victim’s husband then lodged a report at 6.15pm on July 7 after the kindergarten’s principal informed him of the incident. Several raids were conducted on known addresses including the suspect’s mother’s house.
“The 26-year-old man was arrested when he surrendered himself at the Shah Alam police headquarters at 10.10am today. The victims, who were with him, were uninjured,” he said on Friday (July 8).
The motive was thought to be due to the suspect having unreciprocated feelings for his former girlfriend and that he was acting under the influence of drugs.
“Investigations showed that he pushed the victims to the passenger side after she had picked up her son. He then drove off with the two inside,” he said.
The suspect will be remanded on Saturday (July 9).
