Abduction attempt charges

A 35-year-old Prince George man faces several charges over allegations he tried to abduct two children.

Kenneth John faces two counts of kidnapping and one count each of assault and obstructing a police officer.

Police say they were called Tuesday to a disturbance in a playground where a man and woman were fighting.

The man ran off as police approached, and they say they were told the man attempted to take a child from the playground before the woman intervened.

Police say they caught up with the man and arrested him a short while later.

After the arrest, police say they received another report that a man with the same description had tried to take a young boy earlier in the day but his mother fought off the man.
