Police opened an investigation last month when a four-year-old girl was pulled into a car.

She was pushed out when a family member came out of a nearby house and chased the vehicle.

The 27-year-old man has a number of charges, including kidnapping and committing an indecent act.

He is due to appear in the Hamilton District Court today.

Police want to speak to anyone whose child has recently been the victim of an indecent incident in Hamilton, particularly involving a man driving a white car.
