A man has been charged with child abduction following an incident at a Doncaster park.
Zain Shahid, 31, of Solihull, West Midlands, appeared at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Monday 21 May) charged with child abduction.
He was remanded into custody to reappear at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday 18 June.
At around 6.30pm on Saturday (19 May), officers were called to Sandall Park off Thorne Road to reports that a man had attempted to abduct a three-year-old boy.
An investigation was immediately launched and Shahid was arrested later the same day.
Leading the investigation PC Jamie Stewart Said: “We recognise that this incident will cause significant concern in our communities however I would like to reassure people that protecting our most vulnerable members of society is our priority.
“A full investigation is underway and anyone with any concerns or information is asked to please contact 101 quoting incident 847 of 19 May 2018.”
