In the video, the man is seen picking up a woman from outside her home. The incident took place in a busy street in Bengaluru and the boy, named Akshay has been allegedly arrested. “Yes. We have arrested one person. His name is Akshay. He is the culprit,” senior police officer Lokesh Kumar told the Press Trust of India. The girl was on a phone call when the boy came and grabbed her from behind and took her away.
The brazen kidnapping attempt allegedly took place at around 10 pm on April 23 in the southern part of the tech hub.
The girl has alleged that the man took her to a construction site in order to rape her.
“I started shouting, he tried to close my mouth, then I bit him to rescue myself, reacting to it he hit me, then I fell unconscious due to fear,” she told reporters.
When she woke up, the man had run away. “My bag and phone was there,” the woman said, adding that she believed the man’s intention was to rape her.
“I feel this because I had bag, purse and mobile with me, he did not target them. I think his intention was to sexually assault me.”
After the man’s arrest yesterday, over a week after the incident, the woman said: “Strict action should be taken against him.”
Three persons were walking past when the man was taking the woman away but in the footage, they show a spectacular lack of concern at what was happening.
