The post read: “ATTENTION PARENTS !!! In the Miramar shopping centre in Fuengirola there have already been two attempts to abduct children, a three year old boy from some FRIENDS OF MINE, a man of about 60 years old grabbed him by the back of the neck and pushed him, the mother saw him and took the child from him, the man claimed that it was a joke, but last week a woman also tried to kidnap a girl🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏So be careful with this, these mafias are on the coast.”

One Facebook user queried what the man looked like as their son had also allegedly been approached recently.
