Bloemfontein – A 7-year-old Bloemfontein boy has been reunited with his mother after his father allegedly kidnapped him, Free State police said on Friday. 

The man, a 35-year-old Bangladeshi national, was arrested in Tembisa, Gauteng, on Thursday, said police spokesperson Sergeant Ikobeng Hlubi.   

He allegedly took the boy without informing the mother that they were not coming back. A few days later, the mother became worried and reported the matter to police. A case of kidnapping was opened.

It was not immediately clear why the mother waited for several days before going to police.

The man was in custody and expected to appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court soon.
