Man in court over abduction attempt

A 42-year-old man was brought before a special court sitting yesterday over the attempted abduction of a teenage girl last week.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was charged with the attempted false imprisonment of a minor at Moyclare, near Ferbane, Co Offaly, on July 19.

The charge arises from an incident where a man tried to force a 13-year-old into the back of a van. The alarm was raised after she struggled free.

The accused was remanded in custody to appear before Cloverhill District Court on Wednesday.
