A frightening story of an attempted abduction of a child prompted a swfit response from the NYPD and Flatbush Shomrim on Wednesday morning.
Sources tell YWN that a man attempted to abduct a child from a Shul on East 7th Street between Kings Highway and Avenue R. The child was at a family Simcha when the incident occurred.
The mother quickly called 911 and Flatbush Shomrim, who arrived within moments immediately commenced a search for the suspect.
The suspect was eventually found by Flatbush Shomrim hiding in a nearby Yeshiva. It has been confirmed to YWN that the suspect has absolutely no connection to the Yeshiva, and that this is not a case of a custody battle as the perpetrator has no relation or prior connection to the family of his victim.
Sources further tell YWN that the suspect immediately admitted what he did to NYPD detectives and was taken into custody without further incident.
NYPD Community Affairs Units tell YWN that there will be extra NYPD patrols in the area following this incident.
