A man has been arrested after he allegedly dragged a woman by the neck into a car along with a young child.

West Midlands Police said a member of the public reported seeing the crying woman being put in the car in Tower Street, Coventry, at 12:30 BST on Sunday.

Officers found the car on Ansty Road on Monday morning and arrested a 24-year-old man.

The woman and child were later found safe and well at a city address.

The man, from Wood End, was arrested on suspicion of kidnap and has been bailed with strict conditions not to contact the woman, police said.

Det Insp Chris Jones said after receiving a worrying 999 call it was important to find the man and woman as quickly as possible.
