A MAN of 46 caught on CCTV trying to kidnap a 16-year-old girl in Doncaster was due to be sentenced today.
Footage of Dieter Graw trying to snatch the girl from York Road sent shockwaves across Britain when they were broadcast on national TV last summer.
Police who appealed for help received hundreds of calls from the public before Graw, of Booty Cottage, Great Heck, near Selby, North Yorkshire, was finally arrested.
Earlier this year he pleaded guilty at Hull Crown Court to unlawfully and by force or fraud taking or carrying away the teenager against her will on June 27, 2003.
He was warned by Judge Jackie Davies that he would be jailed.
Graw was due to be sentenced at Doncaster Crown Court.
