Two individuals have been arrested in connection to the attempted kidnapping of a thirty-year-old mother and her three- year-old son in Polpithigama, Kurunegala.

Police said that the vehicle used by the suspects has been taken into police custody, adding that the arrests were made based on a tip off.

The incident took place on Sunday morning, when four individuals had carried out the attempted kidnapping as the mother and son were walking on the road.

Police say that the individuals had stopped the vehicle in a bid to change the number plates when the mother had attempted to flee with the child.

This had caught the attention of a number of bystanders who had chased the vehicle, ultimately forcing the kidnappers to flee, leaving the mother and child behind.
