Attempted Abduction Of Boy In Oxford
There's been an attempted abduction of a boy in Blackbird Leys.
At around 11.45am on Saturday (25/5), a young boy was playing outside in Overbrook Gardens when he was approached by a man.
His mother, who was inside at the time, heard him talking. Her partner went outside and found the young boy was no longer in front of the property. He ran down the street and saw the boy with the man at the junction with Three Corners Road.
When the witness shouted at the man, he ran off towards Grenoble Road.
The man is described as white, over 6ft tall and of stocky build. He had short dark hair and was wearing a white Nike t-shirt with a small blue tick on it and black jogging bottoms or jeans.
Investigating officer Det Sgt Mark Stalder from Oxford Force CID said: "At the moment we would like to talk to anyone who saw this happening and we urge the man involved to come forward to police. If anyone saw anyone acting suspiciously yesterday morning, please do get in touch.
"Incidents like this are incredibly rare and I want to reassure the community we are doing everything to catch this offender."
A man's been charged with murdering Daniel Lavender in Aylesbury.
