NEW YORK, NY – Three siblings are safe tonight after a failed attempt by a man inside a NYC subway station to abduct their 10-year-old brother.
According to police, the siblings, ages 10, 15, and 16, were making their way onto the 2 train at the 149th Street and West 34th Street Station when the man grabbed the 10-year-old boy’s leg and attempted to pull him off the train, allegedly telling him, “Get off, this is our stop!”
The man was unknown to the siblings. The juveniles were able to escape from the suspect, who is described as a black male in his 50s or 60s, wearing a blue and red cap, light blue shirt, dark jacket, and wheeling a red bag.
The younger boy’s older siblings intervened and got into a struggle with the man.
At this time, no arrests have been made, and the NYPD is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect.
None of the children were injured during the incident.
