A man has been arrested in Kilkenny following a nationwide alert in connection with the attempted abduction of an 11-year-old girl in Co Laois.

Gardaí had been searching for him after reports that he put a girl into a vehicle in Cullahill, Co Laois yesterday.

An alert was issued following a series of incidents in the midlands involving a man believed to be driving a stolen silver Nissan X-Trail 4×4, which Gardaì have since recovered.

The man had been driving around and begging for money, but yesterday Gardaí received reports he tried to abduct a young girl.

Gardaí were told the man stopped and spoke to two children in the area before putting the girl into the 4×4.

She managed to escape when her ten-year-old brother jumped on the back of the vehicle.

The man is currently being detained at Portlaoise Garda Station.
