Toronto - A 2-year-old and his mother are safe after a scary incident last week in Toronto. The mother and child were walking in the Lansdowne Avenue and Dundas Street West area when a man tried to take the little boy.
Constable Wendy Drummond said during a phone interview that Friday afternoon a man walking the opposite direction as the family grabbed the boy and tried to take him away from his mother. During the struggle the man bit the child on his face.
"On the surface the bite was not very serious," Drummond said, "However, blood was exposed. The child will be tested as a precaution. There are no known medical concerns at this time."
On Friday a man, 29, of Toronto was arrested and charged with attempted abduction of a person under 14 and assault causing bodily harm. There is an ongoing publication ban on the suspect. Police believe that there could be other victims.
"We always have to be aware of those around us when we are out by ourselves and with our children," Drummond said, "In this case the mother did everything right. As in this case, sometimes things happened so quickly that there was no time allowed to protect the child."
Drummond said that the mother and child are doing well. "The mother is very glad that an arrest has been made in the case."
