A Facebook post warns netizens about a man in the IKON Mall and UCSI University area, who bothers girls by adamantly following them and asking questions
In an incident that occurred on 27 September, the man allegedly tried to harass a girl while she was out at IKON Mall to buy groceries
During the incident, the man proceeded to ask her questions like where she was from, is she a Malaysian, for her name as well as her phone number.
The Facebook post, which detailed the incident, added that the man then told the girl to follow him to a McDonald's opposite IKON Mall. However, when she refused, the man took out his phone and started recording a video of the girl as she tried to walk away from him.
The man followed the girl all the way to the Giant Hypermarket in IKON Mall and threatened to "call his boss" if she did not comply
He tried to threaten the girl by showing the videos he had recorded of her, at which point she called up her girlfriend, the person who posted about the incident on Facebook.
According to her, when the man saw the girl on phone, he told her friend to end the call. However, the girl refused to do so.
Following her girlfriend's instruction on call, the girl then ran towards a crowded area, asking a stranger to help pretend to be her friend so that the man chasing her would feel like the girl is not alone and would leave her.
The girl later got hold of a security guard to help her
