KANGAR: Three suspects involved in the attempted kidnapping of a 15-year-old girl in Kampung Tok Kandang here yesterday, were remanded for four days from today.

Kangar district police chief Wari Kiew said the police would conduct further investigations on the motive of the crime.

Yesterday, a 15-year-old girl was reported to have been nearly kidnapped by a group of men, from her home in Kampung Tok Kandang.

The girl was alone in the compound of her home and was approached by two men who arrived there in a black Perodua Viva car at about 11am.

She ran to a neighbour’s house, calling for help, while the three men, aged between 24 and 58, fled.

The suspects were arrested at Simpang Empat yesterday afternoon.
