A would-be child-snatcher grabbed a 10-year-old girl and tried to pull her off a bus in King’s Cross.

It happened at 9.30pm on November 5. The girl was on the 390 bus, heading towards Archway, when the woman approached her.

“While on the bus, the child was approached by a woman who grabbed her arm and tried to pull her from her seat,” said police.

“The friends intervened and the woman got off the bus in Randall’s Road.

“Once off the bus, the woman stood looking through the window, beckoning to the child.”
