It has come to our attention that there was an attempted abduction of a young boy on Wednesday, 13th April at approximately 3.50 p.m in the Saggart area.
It is our understanding that this incident occurred as the child walked home from his school in Saggart, following an after-school club.
Fortunately, in this case, the attempted abduction was unsuccessful, as the child refused to get in the car with these strangers, and ran to safety.
This incident is currently being investigated by the Gardaí.
We would encourage all parents to talk to their child about the potential dangers of talking to strangers.
We would urge all parents to be extra vigilant around our community and report any suspicious behaviour to the Gardaí.
