Man arrested over abduction of boy, eight

Crime scene outside Burgess Park
BBC
A crime scene was in place in and around Burgess Park on Monday

A man has been arrested on suspicion of abducting an eight-year-old boy in Burgess Park in south-east London and kicking and spitting at the officers who tried to detain him.

Police were called to the park in Walworth after reports of a missing child at about 17:20 yesterday.

When officers found the boy, he was in the company of a man not known to him.

A 24-year-old man who was identified as the suspect, ran from police, resisted arrest and attacked officers by kicking and spitting at them.

He was eventually arrested on suspicion of kidnap, two counts of assault on police, common assault, failing to appear at court and for being wanted in relation to a separate matter outside of London.

He was taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody for questioning. The boy has since been reunited with his family.
