This story is over

Officers investigating the alleged attempted abduction of a toddler in Grimsby have released a CCTV image of a man they believe may be able to help them.

As previously reported, a woman was walking along Cromwell Road, Grimsby, pushing her one-year-old child in a pram with her two-year-old son walking behind her at around 2.50pm on Sunday, September 4.


Have you seen this man?

It has been reported that a man tried to grab the boy’s hand.

The boy pointed out a man walking off to his mum.

No one was hurt and officers are working to establish the circumstances.

This comes as other toddlers aged between one and three have allegedly been grabbed by men in attempted abductions in Grimsby earlier this week.

Witnesses, or the man himself, are asked to call 101, quoting log 344 of September 4.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers – anonymously – on 0800 55511.
