A 48-year-old local woman has been arrested in connection with two attempted child abductions in Market Rasen yesterday.
An incident was reported to Lincolnshire Police just after 3.45pm yesterday after a woman was reported to have tried to grab a nine-year-old girl outside a Boots chemist on Queen Street.
During that investigation it was found that a similar incident believed to involve the same woman and a four-year-old boy had occurred minutes earlier in McColl’s newsagents on Queen Street.
Nobody was injured in either incident but the children were left shaken up.
These incidents will understandably be of great concern to the local community, to parents and to families, and I would like to make it clear that they are isolated and one-off occurrences; we have had no further reports of anything of this nature having taken place. We have a suspect in custody and are not looking for anyone else in connection with this investigation.
