Man facing kidnapping and indecent act charges


A 27-year-old Huntly man was arrested yesterday following an attempted abduction and a series of indecent acts towards children in Hamilton.

An investigation began when a four-year-old girl was abducted in Hamilton on 5 October.

The girl was pulled into a car, then pushed out again when a family member came out of a nearby house and chased the vehicle, says a police spokesperson.

"The man has been charged with one count of kidnapping, four counts of committing an indecent act, and two counts of presenting an indecent show/performance."

He will appear in Hamilton District Court today.

"Police would like to speak to anyone whose child has recently been the victim of an indecent incident in Hamilton, particularly involving a man driving a white car."

If you have any information, please contact Detective Constable Rhiannon Jones, Hamilton CIB – 021 930 204
