The suspect was arrested following a dramatic chase in the streets of Naivasha town witnessed by members of the public.

Detectives were however too smart for the suspect’s antics since they pounced on him as he escaped on a getaway motorbike.

His arrest follows stealth and relentless efforts by the investigators, to ensure that the perpetrator does not enjoy a single day of freedom again, to torment innocent children and their families.

In a statement, DCI said, "We thank members of the public who volunteered information, leading to the rescue of baby Liam and the suspect’s arrest."
