Pair extradited from Batemans Bay

A 22-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman have been extradited from New South Wales after members from ACT Policing travelled to Batemans Bay yesterday (Friday, 14 August).

The man and woman were arrested by NSW Police yesterday morning near Batemans Bay following the abduction of an 18-month-old girl from Belconnen on Thursday (13 August). The child was located safe and well.

Applications for the extraditions were made to the Batemans Bay Magistrates Court on Friday (14 August) and were successful.

The pair were returned to the ACT and lodged at the ACT Watch House overnight. They will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (Saturday, 15 August).

The man will face charges of aggravated burglary and assault and both will face charges relating to unlawfully taking a child.

Investigations are ongoing and ACT Policing would like to thank NSW Police for their assistance in this matter.
