The Police have responded to claims of attempted child kidnapping by several locals, and said that besides one complainant, others have not come forward to lodge a report with them.

The complaint which was lodged with the Police is the case of attempted child kidnapping which allegedly happened at the Giant supermarket in VivoCity on 31 July. The online publication, All Singapore Stuff, also published a picture of the alleged child abductor which it claimed it received from one of its readers.
