Due to the proximity to Gloucestershire's border, we have been asked to put out a witness appeal on behalf of Wiltshire Police following an incident in Ashton Keynes on Saturday (8 July 2017) where a nine-year-old girl was grabbed by a man in the Park Place area of the village. Officers have now arrested a 24-year-old local man on suspicion of attempted kidnapping.
He is currently in custody.
Police enquiries are continuing and we are still appealing for witnesses to come forward. If anyone heard or saw anything suspicious in the Park Place area of Ashton Keynes around midday on Saturday, please contact police on 101 and ask for Wiltshire Police.
