What is he doing? Man stares and follows mum with baby around Tiong Bahru Plaza

A mother who was shopping around Tiong Bahru Plaza with her child got seriously creeped out after noticing a man following them around.

Charmaine Kuah shared her encounter in a Facebook post dated May 10.

She first encountered the man while she was expressing milk in the nursing room. 

Charmaine wrote:

"While expressing milk, there was a knock on the nursing room door, then a man's voice.

"I [was] not too sure what did he say, but when I answered, "Yes?" He walked away.

"I thought nothing of it, just weird to have a guy knocking and didn't say things like 'my baby need the room' or whatever, just simply walked away.

"So after I was done with my stuff. I packed up and put Z back into his pram. I wanted to go to the Popular book store to get non-toxic paint for Z as I want to make a bookmark out of his hand print.

"When I left the nursing room and walked out towards Popular, this guy was waiting outside the Kopitiam, near the toilet, looking at us.

"I thought maybe just looking at Z or looking out for someone that was supposed to come out of the toilet, etc. So we continued and I thought nothing of it."

Her encounter was not over. Charmaine met the man at Popular. 

She continued:

"When I was looking at the book, flipping and everything, suddenly this man stood beside me and started to flip through books too. But stood very closely to me.

"After all it's a bookshop. Of course people will look at the same thing as you right?? WRONG! I looked up, as Ihad the uneasy feeling of someone looking at me.

"That man that was outside looking at us right beside me!

"I was shocked. I quickly took the book i needed, & walk to another aisle."

She walked around to check if he was really following her around.

"I went to a file aisle, pretending to look at files and there he is! Again! After that I walked to the kids' aisle, where all the kids' toys, books are, and he came too! Right behind Z!

"I took out my phone and told Z loudly, 'Lets selfie and send to Daddy okay?' 

"I took a picture of Z and the man standing directly behind Z's pram. Then I walked away and decided to take a video.

"I set on video mode, placed in Z's pram, pretending that Z is watching video, and walked around.

"From the screenshots, you can see the man repeatedly looked at us, and in the video he was obviously following us wherever we went! Seriously creepy.

"After the video ended, I announced loudly that we're going to pay money and head home to Z. Then I went to the counter & paid for my items. I took a blur photo of him standing somewhere he can see me, pretending to read a book.

"I turned and told the staff that someone was following me, and told her to help me look out if the man in blue, wearing specs followed me out when I leave the shop.

"Which, he did!

"I ran to the other side where Nail Palace is, and hid behind the escalator, I saw him speed walking out of Popular & looking around, left right and then straight at me!

"I quickly take a step back to hide behind the escalator, but when I saw him walking towards us, I quickly walked the other direction and back to the outside of Popular.

"He saw me staring at him, I guess he knew that I already noticed him, and he quickly ran into the toilet area.

"I was so scared that I was shaking badly. I reported it to the guard and they advised me what to do and I also reported to the police.

"They told me that maybe because I wore sleeveless that was why the man was attracted to me and kept following me.

"I was wearing a romper for God's sake. I kept feeling that the man have been following me all the way back home, I kept looking back.

"Luckily he really didn't follow, or else. I really don't know what I will do. The most scariest people in the world are the mad ones, they have nothing to lose."
