Man admits abducting two children

A man has admitted abducting two young children off the streets in Oldbury.

The 49-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared before Wolverhampton Crown Court, where he entered a guilty plea to a series of charges connected with the kidnapping of a ten-year-old boy, and the abduction of a young girl, in Oldbury last year.

The defendant was arrested on November 13, 2011 after a young boy went missing during a trip to the local shop.

At today's hearing, the defendant pleaded guilty to all offences and was remanded in custody to be sentenced at a later date.
