Detectives in Havering are investigating an allegation of attempted abduction of a boy in Harebell Way, Romford on Saturday, 26 September at 12:08hrs.
The six-year-old boy had been playing with his eight-year-old brother and another six-year-old boy on their bikes in the street, when the victim was approached and grabbed by a man that had got out of a parked dirty white van.
The man is alleged to have attempted to drag the boy whilst a second man opened the rear doors of the vehicle. The boy began to scream, broke free and ran away.

The first man is described as white, he had a bald head, short facial stubble and was aged in his 30s. He was wearing a black T-shirt and black trousers.

The second man is described as white, aged in his mid-30s, with brown hair. He was wearing a blue T-shirt.

Detective Chief Inspector Denise Johnson, from Havering CID, said: “High visibility patrols have been increased in the area to provide reassurance to the local community. I would always ask parents to remind children about the importance of not talking to or going with strangers.” 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Havering police on 101, alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
