Man held by police for child abduction

A man, who was held after reports that he allegedly abducted a six-year-old child, was scheduled to appear before a Chaguanas Magistrate on Monday.

The suspect was held around midday on Friday along High Street, Princes Town.

Police were told that approximately one hour before, the boy was taken without his parent’s consent during an argument between the suspect and a woman at a house in La Lune, Moruga.

The child is a relative of the woman.

The man allegedly put the child in his silver Nissan AD Wagon and drove off.

He was later held by officers of the Ste Madeleine Police station, including WPC Agellire, WPC Breton and PC Sujeet Ramcharan.

More on this as it becomes available.
