Relationships can be challenging in today’s world, and may yield unanticipated consequences. People occasionally make choices that not only affect them personally, but also those around them. In this instance, a man’s choice to flee with his underaged girlfriend had serious implications and ultimately resulted in his arrest.

According to recent reports, a 23-year-old male was detained by the local police after reportedly fleeing with his 17-year-old girlfriend, living with her for over a year before finally being found.

The authorities first became aware of the couple’s disappearance on July 11, 2022, when the girl’s mother alleged that her daughter had been kidnapped by her boyfriend from a housing area in Desa Mentari.

On May 9, 2023, the girl was located at Kampung Olak Lempit in Banting and the suspect was apprehended there as well.

The suspect was employed as a scrap metal shop helper and had no prior criminal history. Prior to the girl’s disappearance, police investigations found that he had previously threatened harm against the girl’s mother.

According to speculation, the suspect fled the scene with the girl after having doubts regarding her fidelity. The couple resided in a shed at the scrapyard where the suspect worked.

The suspect was detained for two days while an investigation into criminal intimidation and kidnapping without the consent of the legal guardian proceeds.
