Two men in a van tried to kidnap a four-month-old baby from a stroller.

Dorset Police say the incident took place in Poole around 3pm yesterday when a mother was walking with her baby in a pushchair when a white van pulled up nearby.

Two men got out of the vehicle, grabbed the stroller and tried to get the baby out.

The mother kicked one of the men and they got back into the van, leaving the baby unharmed.

According to police, one of the men is described as white, 1.80 m tall, in his 30s and of medium height with short dark brown hair.

He was wearing a black vest, black pants and black sneakers. He had a tattoo on his right hand.

The second man is described as white, 1.80 m tall and of medium build with short stubble. He also wore black clothing and a thin silver chain around his neck.

According to the police, the attempted kidnapping must have been frightening for the woman.

Detective Inspector Katie Starkie, from Bournemouth CID, said: “This was understandably a very distressing incident for the mother involved and we have launched a full investigation.

“At the moment, the motive behind the actions of these men is unclear and we are doing everything we can to identify them.”

The police investigation involved analyzing CCTV footage and conducting house-to-house inquiries into what happened.

Officials are also using forensic techniques and have asked the public to check their dashcams and cameras connected to doorbells.

They have also moved to reassure the public and will be increasing the police presence in the area.

“Our requests include house-to-house visits, a review of CCTV footage in the area and forensic work.

“I would urge all residents who have home surveillance systems or doorbell cameras, as well as any drivers with dash cams who were in the area, to review their recordings for anything that may assist our investigation.

“I recognize that reports of this nature are likely to be of concern to the local community.

“There will be an increased police presence in the area as we continue to investigate this incident and officers may be reached by anyone with information or concerns.”

The Mirror last month reported a “harrowing” experience at a hotel in Turkey, where parents claimed they were attacked by two men who were trying to kidnap their children.

The incident is said to have happened in the early hours of May 16, when Elaine and Phil fell into “pure and utter panic” over a night of socializing.

They were on a family vacation with their two children, ages 10 and 11, Elaine said.

The family had been in Turkey for a week before the incident, Dublin live reports.

Speaking on RTE’s Liveline, Elaine said the family had a lovely time, spending the day away from the hotel.

When they returned they went to the outdoor bar for a late night drink and met two English couples, one of whom they had met the night before.

Two men then followed the family into the elevator and reportedly “beat” Elaine and Phil “on the sack” while trying to pull them out.

“Phil was pinned to the bars on either side of the elevator. He was being held and wouldn’t let go,” Elaine said.

“One of my kids, I don’t know how, she kicked one of the men and ran out of the elevator and grabbed her brother.

“The two ran to the toilet next to the elevator. My son had my phone and they called the police.”
