A TEENAGER has been found guilty of attempting to abduct a child from a primary school in Thornton Heath.
The 17-year-old, who cannot be named because of his age, called at Beulah Junior School, in Thornton Heath, on July 21 and told staff he was there to collect a child.
Teachers spoke to the boy who told them he did not recognise the teenager, who left before staff could question him further.
They contacted the police and the 17-year-old was arrested and later charged.
He was found guilty of attempted abduction last Wednesday following a trial at Croydon Youth Court and will be sentenced on December 31.
