A police report has been lodged.
The two cases have not been isolated ones.
Last month, a Malaysian Internet marketeer who narrowly escaped attempted kidnap, revealed her ordeal on her Facebook page.
The incident took place on a Sunday evening when Ms Chin Xin-Ci, was shopping at a popular mall called The Curve.
She was loading her shopping bags onto the back seat of her car in the carpark when she was threatened at knife-point.
Recalling her experience, she wrote: "Suddenly, the rear car door was slammed against my back and a meat cleaver was pressed against my throat."
She was pushed onto the floor in the back of the car by one man, while another took her car keys.
"I told them they could take everything, just let me go. But at that point they didn't even ask for money. Instead, one of the men started to make sexual advances," she said.
She wrote: "Then it hit me... I'm being kidnapped and I think I know what they want."
Panicked yet keeping her wits about her, Ms Chin urged her abductors to let her sit on the seat as they drove out of the carpark.
She managed to unlock the car door on her side without being noticed. Then as the car slowed down to move out of the carpark, she opened the door and tried to jump out.
The abductor sitting beside her tried to pull her back in, while the driver tried to close the door.
Ms Chin said she put up a fight and made sure her legs were always out of the car, which made it difficult for the men to close the door.
It was then that they decided to let her go and fled with the car.
She ran back to the mall and sought help from passers-by.
