Incident number: 17*523958

Detectives investigating a report of an assault on a child in Loughborough have arrested a man in connection with the incident.

At 6.55pm on Friday (1 December), a woman and her five-year-old child were walking on the footpath between Warwick Way and Braddon Close when a man approached them, and pulled the boy around 10ft away from his mother.

The boy is safe and well, but both are understandably shaken by the incident.

Today (Tuesday 5 December) a 46-year-old man has been arrested and detectives will be questioning him.

Enquiries into the report are continuing and we would still like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or saw someone acting suspiciously in the area throughout the evening.

Anyone who can help is asked to contact 101, quoting crime number 17*523958.
