Masked man tries to nab 3-year-old

A masked man attempted to kidnap a three-year-old girl from a playground in Frölunda, Saturday night, according to Swedish Radio P4 Gothenburg, however the girl's older brother managed to stop the man from taking his sister.

A few little kids were playing, when a car drove up, according to Jan-Erik Lundberg from the police. A masked man got out of the car and gathered the girl up and tried to take her with him, continues Lundberg.

The girl's nine-year-old brother than stepped in, kicking and hitting the man, who eventually released the girl and fled back to the car, where a driver was sitting, ready to make a get-away, according to P4 Gothenburg.

Police have no information about the car, and are hoping to trace DNA from the perpetrator through the girl's clothing.
