Police are looking for a man wanted in connection to an attempted abduction of a 10-year-old boy in Woodside Monday.
The child was walking near Roosevelt Avenue and 59th Street with his parents when the suspect allegedly grabbed the boy by the arm and attempted to pull him into a building.
The parents pulled the child away and the suspect fled the location eastbound on Roosevelt Avenue. There were no injuries.
The suspect is described as being Asian, between 60 and 70 years of age, with short gray hear. He was last seen wearing a gray jacket, black jeans and black sneakers.
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspect is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
We need to filter this out… We need to allow concealed carry and in a very short time, we won’t need even half of the police that we have now
Sam- You’re using a senile old man to make your case for conceal carry? The parents were able to just pull their child to safety, you would have needed a gun to do this?
Next time when it’s a young guy who’s stronger than an old man. I wonder if the parents would be able to pull their child away. Absolutely we should be able to carry
Alberto- Next time it could be an even older and even weaker guy or better yet it could be someone with dementia with a conceal carry permit . In all the years this blog has been around this is the first story like this I have heard. Fox News has turned you into a snowflake..
The older man may have Alzheimers and let;s assume he did not know what he was doing
Any thing is possible these days? Dementia does strange things to people
He probably have Alzheimer’s and started to remember his old ways.
The real crime here is those Cash for Cars and “TV+INTERNET $60” signs that nobody cares about but they are popping up everywhere.
And this is pertaining to the problem, how???
Why bother trying to abduct a child who is walking WITH his or her parents? Not saying you should abduct any child but this is the second child who was with parents who was almost abducted.
Clearly an aberration to the wonders of diversity.
