Father who abducted & # 39; his two-year-old daughter from a British children's home & # 39; is arrested hours later at Madrid airport en route to Algeria

  • Police arrested the 44-year-old in an Iberia plane en route to Algeria last Thursday

The police in Spain have arrested an Algerian who allegedly snatched his two-year-old daughter from a children's home in Nottingham and fled the UK with her.

The 44-year-old was detained on an Iberia plane at Madrid airport during a planned stop en route to his North African homeland.

The little girl was rescued and transferred to local social services so that she could be sent back to the UK.

Just an hour before his detention, the British National Crime Agency issued a warning that a father had stolen his daughter from a children's home, threatened staff with a firearm and tied them up with rope, La Vanguardia reported.

The Spanish police today released photos of the 44-year-old suspect after the arrest last Thursday at Madrid Airport

The whereabouts of the prisoner today were not clear, but it is thought that the British authorities have issued a European arrest warrant so that the suspect can appear before a judge in Madrid at an extradition hearing and be flown back to Britain to stand trial.

The Spanish police said he had lost custody of his daughter in circumstances that were not fully explained in a statement about the arrest.

A Spanish national police spokesperson said: & # 39; Spanish national police officers have arrested an Algerian who allegedly snatched his two-year-old daughter from a children's home in Nottingham in the UK.

& # 39; The father had lost custody of his child, but came to the center and took her by force after having threatened and tied alleged staff with a firearm.

& # 39; He was detained in an airplane en route to Oran in Algeria when it made a stopover in Madrid. & # 39;

The spokesperson added: & # 39; The plane was about to take off when he was arrested. The little girl was in good health and was transferred to social services so that they could take care of her until she could be sent back to the UK. & # 39;

The arrest took place last Thursday, the same day as the kidnapping, although today the Spanish police were only made aware of the news of the detention.
