Police are appealing for public assistance following the attempted abduction of a six-year-old child at Tweed Heads on Sunday.

The boy told police he was outside a church on Caloola Drive about midday when a man grabbed him and began to run away with him.

The boy yelled and attempted to kick the man, before he was released at the end of the driveway.

The man then got into a car and drove away.

The man has only been described as wearing dark clothing and driving a black car with metallic paintwork.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has any information that could assist investigators is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: www1.police.nsw.gov.au.
