SHAH ALAM - A woman, identified as Tina on social media platforms TikTok and Twitter, has shared a disturbing encounter with a man who stalked her and her friend in the basement parking lot of Pavilion Damansara Heights.

Tina recounted her unsettling experience in a TikTok video that garnered nearly 2 million views before it was removed.

She described how she noticed a man acting suspiciously as she was leaving her car in the parking lot.

The man seemed to be waiting for her and claimed that they had been in contact through WhatsApp.

Tina felt a sense of fear when she arrived at the shopping center and saw the man waiting for her and her friends.

She chose to stay in her car and contacted her friends, waiting for them to arrive.

The situation escalated as the man continued to assert that they knew each other, even though Tina had never seen him before.

Tina knew how to lock her doors, and her friends soon arrived.

Tina expressed her fear and urged other women to be vigilant, revealing that she was still traumatised by the incident.

“This guy claimed that we knew each other. Luckily, I locked my door, and my friends were there too.

“It was terrifying. Girls, please beware. I’m still traumatised after what happened” she wrote on her Twitter platform sharing awareness on what happened to her and her friend.

Despite Tina's explicit refusal, the man persisted in his intrusive behavior, taking unauthorised pictures of her and her friends and even touching his private parts in front of them.

He also persistently sought their trust, requesting Tina's phone number and following them into the shopping centre.

Tina and her friend eventually sought assistance from a security guard to escape the harasser.

However, the language barrier prevented them from receiving prompt help, as the guard was unable to understand their situation.

Tina's tweet detailing the incident attracted widespread attention, with many online users condemning the man's unacceptable behavior.

Some individuals even shared their own experiences with stalking.

In a follow-up tweet, Tina addressed those who blamed her for the incident.

She defended her actions by asserting that women are frequently harassed in parking lots and can distinguish between normal approaches and creepy behavior.

The incident has raised concerns among internet users about the safety of women in public spaces, particularly in parking lots with limited bystanders.

It also highlights the importance of security personnel being able to communicate effectively with customers.
