January 23, 2021

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to abduct a five-year-old boy.

The abduction is said to have taken place at a park in Northolt, west London, earlier this month.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police said the suspect was a 27-year-old who was arrested at a house in Surrey on Saturday.

It added: "At approximately 2.30pm on Thursday, 7 January, a man is alleged to have approached a five-year-old boy in Northala Fields, Northolt, before picking him up and running a short distance away.

"He was confronted by the boy's mother and put the child down - the boy was unharmed."

The force previously put out a CCTV image of the suspect in a bid to track him down.

Detective Constable Ashleigh Nelson said at the time: "Incidents of this nature are very rare but I understand the concern it may have caused in the local community."
