Updated on 6/12/17 at 1:47 p.m.

Incident number: 17*523958

A man arrested in connection with a report of assault on a child in Loughborough has been released with no further action.

At 6.55pm on Friday (1 December), a woman and her five-year-old child were walking on the footpath between Warwick Way and Braddon Close when a man approached them, and pulled the boy around 10ft away from his mother.

The boy is safe and well, but both are understandably shaken by the incident.

Yesterday (Tuesday 5 December) a 46-year-old man was arrested. He has since been released with no further action.

Enquiries into the report are continuing and we would still like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or saw someone acting suspiciously in the area throughout the evening.

Anyone who can help is asked to contact 101, quoting crime number 17*523958.
