North Bay Police have charged a 42 year old male with attempted abduction and assault.

A female and a child were walking downtown last night around 7:30 on Main Street when they were approached.
After a brief interaction the pair walked on to Fisher St. when an attempt was made to grab the child.

Police say the female who didn’t know the assailant was assaulted several times.

They say a citizen stopped the assault and the male was picked up later.

Medical attention was not required.
