Last week a man attempted to kidnap a 10-year-old boy on McClintock St, Whangarei.

The boy was walking home with his school friends around 3pm when the man grabbed the boy's backpack and tried to force him into the open car boot.

The man, described as being of European decent, with black/brown curly shoulder length hair, chased the boys in his car, attempting to block their escape by driving his car onto the footpath.

The boy said he was wearing black jeans, a black hoodie, and had tattoos on his arms.
