A 64-year-old man has been arrested for kidnapping a five-year-old girl on his mobility scooter in June with evidence now surfacing that he allegedly sexually abused her on the same day…

Photos of the man, identified as Hendrik W., riding with the young victim on his mobility scooter were widely circulated on the day of the incident in the village of Glanerbrug in the Dutch city of Enschede on 20th June.

The images appear to show the girl sitting on the suspect’s lap as he rides along a path on the scooter.

The Dutch police were informed of the incident and they identified the elderly suspect and went to his home.
