On 11 Jan, a male driver in a white van had approached a schoolgirl from United World College of South East Asia offering her a ride.

Police say the driver had no ill-intent and was offering the schoolgirl a lift as it was raining at the time.
On 16 Jan, a schoolgirl from Tanglin Trust School was approached by woman on a bus who offered her a ride.
