Kota Kinabalu police chief Asst Comm M. Chandra said the girl claimed that when she met the boys, they had invited her to go for a walk to an abandoned house and she had followed them.

“Later, she told them that she did not want to continue but the boys allegedly forced her to follow, saying that they only wanted to talk and would send her home after that,” he said when contacted.
