AN EVESHAM teenager has been charged with attempted kidnap after an incident involving a baby in Derby.

The 17-year-old appeared before magistrates in the city on Tuesday (September 29) and will appear before the Youth Court in Derby on Monday (October 5).

Another 17-year-old girl, from Wolverhampton, has been arrested in connection with the incident and released on bail while the investigation continues.

A 19-year-old mother called police to report that on Monday, September 21, a young woman knocked at the door of her home in Normanton, claiming to be a social worker.

She asked to hold the infant and the women spoke on the doorstep for a short time before she handed the child back to its mother and left.

Anyone with information should call police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
