The woman ran into the street and hid behind some parked cars on sighting the uncle. The hypnotised girl told the uncle that they were looking for a warehouse .The uncle asked her who she was with? The girl turned back but couldn’t find the woman. The woman remained in her hiding position until the uncle entered into his car.
