A group of friends have been arrested and are now under police remand for a failed kidnap attempt at Genting Highlands.
The crime was uncovered when a witness spotted two suspects - a man and a woman - driving in a stolen Honda City.
The witness then lodged a police report at around 6.45am on Sunday, after coming across the suspects at the First World Hotel in Genting Highlands, reported Malaysia's The Star.
When approached by the police, the couple sped away in the vehicle and a car chase ensued. The driver subsequently lost control of the car and it flipped onto its side in Gohtong Jaya.
While the suspects were being arrested, two men and a woman arrived in a Proton Perdana, claiming to know the owner of the Honda City.
The police then took all five to the Bentong district police station for questioning. At that point, a police officer heard a muffled sound coming from the Proton Perdana's boot and found a man inside.
The man claimed that he and a female friend were kidnapped at the hotel's carpark.
