Parents beware, This is how easy it is to abduct a child.

Published

on

A Prankster Joey Salads has sparked a debate after he casually walks into a children’s playground and offered lollies and chocolate to a five-year-old boy before snatching him.

All in front of his dad, who instead of actively supervising was sat on his mobile phone on a bench within the park.

The youngster was the only child on the playground, but his father had tuned out so much he didn’t notice the stranger talking to his son.

“Want candy? Let’s go. Want some more candy? Yeah? Come with me, we’ll go and get more,” Joey said, as the trusting child took his hand.

Abducting a child is a criminal act but this was a social experiment which was set up by the boy’s mother Emily.

“I did other videos similar to this in the past. The mother reached out to me on Facebook talking about her situation,” Joey told news.com.au.

She worried her husband her husband spent too much time on his phone, and didn’t pay enough attention to Josh while they were out in public.

“What do you think will happen when we go?” Joey asked her in an interview before he attempted the brazen stunt.

“I think it’s possible if you call him over he’s going to come,” she replied.

“His father’s not going to be paying attention, so you definitely have a chance of scooping him up.”

Her worst fears were confirmed when Joey calmly led the boy from the playground, right under his father’s nose.

“Oh my God,” she said with her hand to her face as she watched from a distance.

It’s not clear how much time passed before the dad noticed something was up.

He got to his feet and called his son’s name, but the child was nowhere to be found.

“What the f*** is wrong with you? You’re not paying attention, sitting there one your phone not paying attention,” she yelled, storming into the playground as the dad looked around helplessly.

“I don’t know where the f*** he is. Where is he?” the father replied, holding his arms out while he paced fretfully.

“That’s ‘cause you’re not paying attention to him,” Emily accused.

“We’ve set you up because I knew you don’t pay attention when you have your son.”

“Oh please,” the father replied angrily, before Joey walked into the shot with Josh.

“We’ve set you up, well I saw you texting so I abducted him with some candy,” the prankster explained.

“Thank God, come here boy,” the relieved father said, taking his giggling son into his arms and kissing him on the cheek.

“You know to keep an eye on him, because it was just like that,” Joey told the father, snapping his fingers.

Joey said he created it because he wanted to warn how terrifyingly easy it is to abduct a child in public if the parents aren’t paying attention.

“It could possibly save a life.”

Several of the exhibits had originated from the old Forensic Science Service laboratory when it moved from Newton Street to Gooch Street.

The Sparkhill museum contains items of policing memorabilia and old records from the West Midlands Police predecessor forces of Birmingham City Police, Walsall Borough Police, Dudley Borough Police, Wolverhampton Borough Police and West Midlands Constabulary. Some records are also held of Staffordshire County Police and Worcestershire officers as parts of those forces now fall within the West Midlands Police area.

What on earth is happening in Salisbury? Two people fall seriously ill

Published

on

Emergency Services have launched a major incident after two people have fallen ill in Salisbury.

Officers have placed a cordon around Prezzo Restaurant after a man and woman were taken ill.

Police have declared a major incident. Police do not believe this is linked to Novichok.

Police received a call from the ambulance service to Prezzo restaurant, in High Street, at approximately 6.45pm. Two people, a man aged in his 40s and a woman aged in her 30s, had become unwell.

Due to recent events in the city and concerns that the pair had been exposed to an unknown substance, a highly precautionary approach was taken by all emergency services.

Both were taken to Salisbury District Hospital and were clinically assessed. We can now confirm that there is nothing to suggest that Novichok is the substance. Both people remain in hospital under observation.

The major incident status has now been stood down.

At this stage it is not yet clear if a crime has been committed and enquiries remain ongoing.

Salisbury District Hospital remains open as usual.

A cordon will remain in place around Prezzo at this time as part of ongoing routine enquiries. All other areas that were cordoned off will now be reopened.

We’d like to thank the public for their patience as a result of the impact of this incident.
