Man tries to abduct three-year-old British girl at Costa del Sol resort after getting a young boy to talk to her and promising to buy her sweets

The incident happened as the 27-year-old mother-of-two was taking her daughter to a dance class in the holiday resort of Estepona. The girl’s mother told detectives a balding gypsy-looking man aged around 50 with a scar on his face tried to snatch the youngster after telling her he would buy her sweets. Cops confirmed on Thursday that they were probing the expat’s claims but had yet to make any arrests.
