The incident in Rochdale occurred on Saturday 23 July at around 5.45pm at an address on Bradshaw Street.

CCTV footage seen by The Manc shows that the attempted abduction was thwarted by another child, who bravely intervened.

He then picks up the child and attempts to walk out of the shop, before another child steps in to pull the victim away.
