Jealousy leads to false kidnap claim

WELFARE services have been called in after a ten-year-old girl falsely claimed that she had been a victim of an attempted abduction on Tuesday evening in Limassol.

The girl, whose parents are Ukrainian and Greek Cypriot, told police that while walking along the road she had been approached by a man in a car who tried to force her into his vehicle. In her original statement she said that two men had rushed to her assistance but later admitted that she had made up the story as she felt slightly neglected by her parents as her mother had recently given birth to twins.

Limassol CID chief Ioannis Soteriades told the Cyprus Mail that the young girl had felt she was no longer the centre of attention and made up the story.
