CCTV Appeal After Alleged Kidnap In Poole

At about 4pm on Saturday, 2 July 2011, a young boy, approximately four to six years old, with blond hair was standing at a bus stop with his father in Haven Road when a man allegedly grabbed the child and ran off into Mauley Road.

The father and the boy were seen to leave the scene a few minutes later on the number 50 bus.

"We have not been able to trace the boy's father so far.
"By releasing this CCTV image we hope to identify him and would urge him or anyone who recognises him to contact police as soon as possible."
