06 Mar 2015 12:12
A 35-year-old man has been charged with the false imprisonment of a child in Co Laois two days ago.
The 11-year-old girl was forced into a stolen vehicle in the village of Cullahill, but managed to escape after her ten-year-old brother jumped on the vehicle and distracted the driver.
The man was arrested in Kilkenny following a nationwide garda alert.
He was questioned at Portlaoise Garda Station for the past 24 hours, and the DPP has now directed he be charged.
The man is due to appear before Portlaoise District Court this afternoon.
