He was reportedly challenged by a parent after speaking to the schoolgirl in the boozer at around 8pm.

Cheshire Police confirmed that he was then detained by members of the public outside the pub in Lewin Street to prevent him from leaving the area.

A 51-year-old man, from Middlewich, has been arrested on suspicion of child abduction and remains in custody.

The little girl was physically unharmed in the terrifying incident.

Chief Inspector Claire Jesson said: “While this was a very concerning incident, this was isolated and the suspect was swiftly arrested.

“I’d like to thank those who intervened and prevented the suspect from leaving the area.

“We have increased patrols to provide reassurance and the family are being supported by officers.”
