Chilling moment a child abductor casually approaches a boy before taking him away on a street in China
A Chinese boy abducted by a stranger in broad daylight has been rescued hundreds of miles away from home.
Chilling surveillance footage captures how six-year-old Chuan Chuan was kidnapped on a street in Kunming when he was playing video games last week.
The video shows a stranger casually approaching the boy, talking to him briefly before carrying him away calmly.
The incident occurred at around 1pm last Thursday in Baofeng village in Kunming, according to a report from Kunming TV.
Chuan Chuan, wearing a green top and red trousers, was playing video games with several other children outside a small supermarket, according to the surveillance footage released by the TV station.
The clip shows a stranger waiting by the video game machines before going up to Chuan Chuan for a brief conversation.
A few minutes later, the man is seen carrying Chuan Chuan in his arms and walking away from the scene discreetly.
Chuan Chuan’s father Mr Long, a street vendor, claimed he did not know the man who had taken away his son.
He admitted that Chuan Chuan had been left alone to play on the day because he had to ride his tricycle around the city to sell fruit. He reported to the police after failing to find his son.
The desperate father said he had been waiting outside the supermarket every day since, hoping to find some clues to Chuan Chuan’s disappearance.
The police found Chuan Chuan at around 11pm on Saturday in another city called Baoshan, which is 400 kilometres (250 miles) from Kunming, it is reported.
Chuan Chuan told the police that he had spent two days with a ‘strange uncle’ who had bought him a toy car and played with him next to a river.
The boy was returned to his mother on the same night.
His mother, Ms Li, told Kunming TV emotionally: ‘I thought I had lost him forever. I cried every day.
‘Now he has been found. What a relief.’
The suspect has been detained by the police.
The case is being investigated further.
