The 51-year-old is said to have approached a ten-year-old boy on Röhrer Weg in Böblingen around 8 a.m. and dragged him into a VW bus. Two witnesses became aware of the boy's cries for help, freed him from the vehicle and held the suspect until the police arrived.

The 51-year-old was temporarily arrested and is currently in police custody. The investigation into the background is currently ongoing. The suspect will be brought before a judge on Thursday. (german source archived)

Parents in the region now fear for their kids. Trying to measure if this fear is justified in the sense that it could have been any kid.

Resolves YES if it the man tried to kidnap the kid and had no other relations to him. Motive might have been ransom or abuse.

Resolves NO if this was about something else. For example, if the man is the father and it was a misunderstanding.

Resolves NA if we don't find out.

I will not trade myself (anymore).

Sold my shares and will not trade anymore. Resolution could become tricky, so I don't want to be biased by my position.

Extending it for a month. Currently, it looks like NA since no news are appearing. Any ideas how to find out more?
