NEW YORK, NY – A woman who attempted to abduct and kidnap a 5-year-old boy in Brooklyn Monday night is being sought by detectives from the NYPD’s 88th Precinct.

Police said an unidentified black female approached a child walking with his parents in the area of Lafayette and Flatbush Avenue at around 5:40 pm.

The woman was able to grab the child and began to run off with him. The boy was set free after the woman fled approximately 10 steps away from the parents toward State Street.

The woman was between the age of 30 and 40 years old. She was wearing a red and gray jacket with red pants. She had a medium dark complexion, medium build, and short-cropped hair.
