PETALING JAYA, Malaysia - A group of friends are under police remand after a failed kidnap attempt at Genting Highlands.
A witness lodged a police report at around 6.45am yesterday after spotting two of the suspects, a man and a woman, driving in an allegedly stolen Honda City at the First World Hotel in Genting Highlands.
When approached by police, the couple sped away in the vehicle and a car chase ensued.
The driver lost control of the car, causing it to flip 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.
Police brought all five to the Bentong district police station for questioning.
It was then that an 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.
