The post received mixed reaction from users. While some claimed that they have verified with the right authorities and it is a rumour, others were concerned and warned their friends

One Facebook user named 'Cookie Zen' commented: "I frequent Pavilion often so I called up their management office to check. They said no such case happened. I further checked with my friend who is a journalist with The Star."

She continued: "He also said that the police did not receive reports on an attempted rape there last night. I hope that the admin here has verified with the appropriate sources. Otherwise, this should just be treated as a piece of rumour."
