This dad is wanted by police for violently kidnapping two of his three young children last night on the outskirts of Paris and cops believe he could try to leave France.
The incident took place in the commune of Drancy, in the Seine-Saint-Denis department on the outskirts of the French capital when the dad, who has not been named in reports but who is said to be “dangerous”, allegedly abducted little Abdelwahab, 6, and Saloua, 7.
Reports in numerous French newspapers say the suspect was dressed in black and wearing a helmet, with cops saying the children were “barefoot and wearing only their underwear” when their dad, who has lost his parental rights to them, allegedly kidnapped them on Tuesday evening (7th June).
The local prefecture issued a statement saying the father, with the help of an accomplice “violently took two of his three children” from their grandmother’s home. The gran is reportedly his former mother-in-law.
The suspect fled on foot before getting into a white SUV.
Police have released these pictures of the children, along with a picture of the suspect.
Police suspect he may attempt to take the children across the French border to either Belgium, Germany or Algeria.
Anyone who sees the suspect is asked not to “intervene” directly as he is believed to be “dangerous”. Tips can be given by calling the French police on +33141602936 or +33141603001.
