The last two weeks have seen several 'terrifying' incidents including sexual assaults, stabbings and abduction attempts reported to the police.

The surge in incidents, all involving school children, has followed what seemed to be a relatively quiet school term.

We have listed the horrific reported crimes that have been reported to us within the Croydon, Sutton and Merton areas recently.

The below incidents were reported by children in both secondary and primary school, starting from November 3 to November 9.

Kadian Nelson has been charged by Met Police

In scenes which rocked the internet, a video of a man appearing to attempt to abduct a girl was shared a million times in a bid to bring him to justice.

The man in the footage is thought to be Kadian Nelson, who has since been charged with rape and kidnap.

He is accused of attempting to abduct the girl in the North Place area of Mitcham, on November 3.

We spoke to a key witness, a mother, who told us how herself and her three daughters helped save the teenage girl.

One day later, a second attempted abduction was reported on November 4. 

Police were called after the child, thought to be in Year 5, reported that he was approached in Colwood Gardens at around 8.20 am.

It is believed that the child was making his way to Singlegate Primary School when the incident took place.

A passer-by reportedly intervened after she saw the man "grab the child from the back of his neck."

A spokesperson for Met Police said: "Police were called following reports that a child had been approached.

"Officers have spoken with the child and a family member and are looking into the circumstances of the incident.

"No injuries were reported."
