On Wednesday, while the child was playing in the garden of a home in Coagh, a man drove into the property's driveway, got out of the car and grabbed the child's arm.

The child's mother, alerted to the incident, managed to chase the man away.

There were no injuries reported.

Police have said a 55-year-old man is currently helping them with their enquiries.
