Man tries to abduct boys in Christchurch

Police are on the hunt for a man they say tried to abduct two boys from a Christchurch car park.

The man had tried to push the boys, aged about 11 and 12, into his silver Toyota Estima van in front of the Church Corner Countdown on Riccarton Rd on Wednesday afternoon, a police spokesperson said.

She said the man, about 60 and with long, grey hair, had driven off after failing to get the children into the vehicle.

Neither of the boys were hurt, but were getting support.
