Mom Thwarts NYC Kidnapping Attempt, Pulls Son Out Snatchers' Car Window | NBC New York
The NYPD is searching for a duo they say attempted to kidnap a 5-year-old boy in Queens Thursday -- an attempt that was thwarted by the young child's mother.
According to police, the kidnapping attempt took place around 8 p.m. on Hillside Avenue when one individual picked up the 5-year-old boy from the sidewalk and placed him in the rear seat of his vehicle while the second individual sat in the front passenger's seat.
The child’s mother rescued her son by pulling him out of the kidnappers’ car window, police say. The harrowing scene was caught on surveillance. NBC New York’s Myles Miller reports.
