Suspected abduction in Waimate

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 8/04/2016

© File Image A warning from a Waimate father about an alleged attempted abduction of his 14-year-old son is being widely shared on social media.

Nathan Fletcher has posted on Facebook that a man tried to pull his 14-year-old son into a black car on Harris Street on Thursday and he has informed police about the incident. There was a second man in the car and his son had been walking with a friend.

Waimate police were unsure if the men had been trying to abduct the teen, or to intimidate him, but they were treating the incident seriously, Fairfax reported.

Mr Fletcher later posted that a woman had contacted him to say her 12-year-old daughter and niece were approached by four men in a car last week in Oamaru.
