Police warning after attempted abduction

A warning from police for parents to be extra vigilant after reports of an attempted child abduction in West Bay.

Police said they received a report from a member of the public saying a man in a two seater blue van tried to pick up a young boy as he walked home from a park on Thursday morning.

Detectives are investigating, but encouraged parents to remind their children of the dangers of accepting rides from strangers.
