KUANTAN: A 16-year-old teenager, who was allegedly abducted by a man impersonating a policeman yesterday, was found safe in Raub today.
Raub district police chief Supt Wan Mohd Zahari Wan Busu said Nur Syaminn Nabila Mohd Shapawi was found at 11.05am at a bus station after she contacted her family members and informed them that she was in town.
“The victim claimed to have boarded the bus from Kuala Lumpur to Raub and was immediately picked up at the bus station and taken to Raub Hospital and Kuala Lipis for an examination,” he said when contacted here.
Wan Mohd Zahari said police were still trying to locate the suspect who pretended to be a police sergeant who was recently posted to the Sungai Ruan police station, when he abducted the victim.
The dark-skinned, thin suspect, who introduced himself as Faiz, was believed to have tricked the victim’s mother by saying he needed the girl’s help to take his newly-purchased motorcycle from a shop in Sungai Ruan to his house, which was in the vicinity. The last she saw was her daughter leaving in the suspect’s car.
“We hope the public will not speculate or make assumptions regarding the case as investigations are ongoing,” he said.
He said the case was being investigated under Section 363 and Section 170 of the Penal Code for abduction and impersonating a public servant.
