Man Tries To Abduct British Child In Estepona
A British mother has warned parents in Estepona to be vigilant after a “Gypsy looking man” in his early 50s tried to abduct her daughter, a toddler. The woman was walking on a quiet street behind the promenade, taking her daughter to a dance class. The man approached her daughter, along with a young boy who may have been seven. He struck up a conversation then offered to buy her sweets, before taking her by the hand and trying to lead her away. The woman screamed for help, and the man ran off with the young boy.
Police have confirmed that they are looking into the incident which took place on the 29th March. They have said it’s possible that the incident was a misunderstanding, though the 27 year mother is adamant it was an attempted abduction.
The toddler’s mother issued this warning on Facebook: “Please be aware that in the Estepona area there is a man in his 50s going around trying to take children. He attempted to take my daughter. He uses a child to talk to the other children and then takes their hands and tries to take them.
“Everyone with children or who knows someone with children should be very careful and not let your child out of your sight.”
The man who allegedly tried to take the young girl was wearing dark blue trousers and a black t shirt. The woman says: “The man has greying hair and a scar on the right side of his head.”
