"Woman Arrested Thankfully"
Police investigating possible child abduction attempts in Jersey have arrested a 50 year-old woman.
It follows two separate reports of a woman approaching children in St Helier, the first in Liberation Square and then last Sunday in the Royal Square.
It comes after the force sent out a warning to parents this week after the two children were approached on separate occasions.
Officers say on the 22nd of June, a middle-aged woman approached a 2-year-old girl in Liberation Square.
That was reported to police after a similar incident in the Royal Square was flagged up on Sunday, when parents claimed a woman had tried to lead their toddler away.
Police say they don't know if the cases are connected.
