The video captioned “At Sanam Pao BTS Station. Very scary, I was walking on the sidewalk when he started following me. I saw that he was barefoot and saying things that didn’t make sense. I started walking away but I realized he continued to follow me. I decided to walk up to the BTS station and he still followed me to the station. I started running but he chased me and yelled for me to stop. Who would have stopped running? I am about to cry”. The Twitter user revealed 2 of his friends were followed by the same shoeless man. They are both high school students and have never met the man before. The girls walked past him on the sidewalk while he was having a conversation with a building security guard. The girls realized he was following them. At first, they were going to jump on a taxi but then decided to run for help at the BTS instead.
The man continued following them, they were frightened and started running. The man ran after the girls yelling for them to stop. They used their Skytrain cards and entered the station. A Skytrain security guard and maid went to chase the man away. Other Twitter users replied to the tweet revealing similar incidents at Sanam Pao BTS.

Please be careful”.
