PSNI assist Gardai in hunt for paedophile trying to abduct children

THE PSNI are helping Gardaí in their hunt for a paedophile suspect behind an attempt to abduct children close to the border.

Officers on both sides of the Derry/Donegal fear the pervert will try to strike again following an attempt at Bridgend.

On Tuesday, Gardaí in Letterkenny revealed that the suspect has now also targeted children in the town.

It follows a similar incident in Buncrana a week ago following the incident in Bridgend.

Local Gardai at Letterkenny have issued a warning to parents of small and teenage children following a number of reports of approaches to children.

Garda Crime Prevention Officer Sergeant Paul Wallace said: “We have had a number of reports of approaches to children by male persons driving cars particularly in the Inishowen area but also in Letterkenny.

“These individuals have stopped with children and asked for directions, offered sweets etc.

“The common thread so far has been the descriptions of the cars as being silver, light blue with the makes described as a Ford focus or Audi.”

It’s understood PSNI and Garda officers are examining CCTV footage from a number of locations in an effort to identify the suspected paedophile and his car.

Anyone with information about the abduction attempts is asked to contact the PSNI on 0845 600 8000.
