Terrified mum fights off man who tried to snatch son, 8, and pull him into car on way to school | The Sun

A HORRIFIED mum screamed as she fought off a man who tried to snatch her son, 8, on his way to school.

The attacker attempted to grab the child as he walked along a street in Yeovil, Somerset on Monday morning.

His heroic mum, who was pushing another youngster in a pushchair, shouted in terror and held onto her son.

This resulted in the man returning to his car and fleeing the scene in a "dirty white estate".

A police spokesperson said: "Officers have carried out house-to-house and CCTV enquiries and are in touch with the boy’s school, while reassurance patrols have been carried out.

"No further incidents have been reported, but please do contact your neighbourhood officers with any concerns."

The man was about 5ft 8ins tall, and of medium build with broad shoulders, according to the mum's eye-witness account.

Avon and Somerset Police are hunting the attacker, who is thought to be in his 30s.

Cops released a statement describing him as having olive brown skin, dark-coloured hair in a quiff style and a beard.

His car was "a dirty white estate with tinted rear windows".
