Police in Bali are searching for a former Perth man accused of abducting his 15-month-old baby from his ex-partner’s home in a late-night home invasion.

In an emotional video posted to Facebook, Alistair Larmour said he had no other option but to take baby Andrew by force after a long custody battle with the child’s mother Agnes Krzysztofowicz, reports 9 news.

The father allegedly took Andrew from Ms Krzysztofowicz’s home on Sunday night with Australian, Indonesian and Polish authorities now working to track him down.

Mr Larmour posted a video to Facebook yesterday in which he  burst into tears describing his heartbreak at not being able to see his son.

“I felt really cornered and this was actually the only option left for me, the fact is that I just really want to be a dad.

“I just wanted to make the point that Andrew is happy and healthy and that he’s fine, I’m fine.

“I’m sorry you (family) all got involved, everybody is okay, everything is okay and mediation has begun.”

Ms Krzysztofowicz claims Alistair abducted the 1 year old after beating her up in the middle of the night… “Please help me to find my son and get him back. Alistair Larmour is abusive and dangerous. Please help,” she wrote on Facebook.

He has since has been taken into custody in Bali, accused of abducting his 15-month-old son.

The baby, Andrew, is also safe and well in the hands of police.

Child recovery specialist Colonel Chapman, who has been helping with the case, said Alistair Larmour was arrested around 3.30am local Bali time and is “being interrogated by police”.

  • I wonder if the baby was born in Aust. or Bali? I know o in some cases the court agrees with one of the parents and a child is not allowed to be taken out of the country. In fact I know of one case where the Mother wasn’t allowed to take her son interstate.

  • Pity the child is now in a tug of war between his parents – this sort of thing should not happen.

  • I feel for the children in circumstances like these. Parents don’t see the harm they are doing to the kids, while trying to hurt each other.

  • Glad the authorities worked on this one and being overseas didn’t mean that he could get away with it. Abduction is wrong, especially with violence and home invasion. The issues need to be sorted out and hopefully the family will get help, for the sake of the kid especially.

  • I can’t imagine this was his only option. However, I also don’t know the full story.

  • These cases are always sad and we never know enough to really understand what’s going on. Hopefully the best interests of the child are met.


    • I tend to agree – the full story is never known by the public in these sad cases.

  • The father has the rights to see his child but done it in the wrong way to get his child which is now going to be harder to see his child.

  • I read an article on the newspaper this morning. Not difficult to sympathize with the father for wanting to spend more time with his kid. But abducting him is not a solution. He went in the ex’s apartment with another man, scaring her to death and the woman was also hit in the head. That’s not good at all. They should be thinking about the rights of the kid first.

  • Poor baby, so damaging and confusing for this child ! Until mum & dad sort themselves out, they should only be able to see their boy Andrew under supervision.

  • its cruel and punishing to not let dads see their own kids – it’s heartbreaking to see Dad’s who have so much love for their children yet they cannot show them because their ex’s think its best for the child – well it’s not – kids need both parents to teach them and to raise them and to love them, and if the parents can’t be together for their own personal reasons that’s fine, but they must put those reasons away when it comes to the raising of the child and work together as best they can for the positive and loving upbringing when co-parenting their child.

    I wish Alistair and his son all the best I hope in the end there can be a peaceful resolution for both parties and that Alistair gets more time with his son

  • Its so unfair kids are the ones who get stuck in the middle of parents at war.

  • What a terrible situation. Both parents have the right to see the baby. They should reach a compromise :-(
