Attempted Kidnapping Foiled by Dad: NYPD

NYPD

Police released this sketch of the suspect. They say he fled in a dark blue, four-door sedan.

A man tried to kidnap an 11-year-old boy in Queens, but fled when the child's father arrived, police said Saturday. 

The boy was waiting to be picked up after school Friday in Flushing when a man drove up and said, "Get in the car, I'll take you somewhere nice upstate," police said.

When the boy refused, police said the man got out of the car, grabbed the child's hands and tried to pull him inside the vehicle. 

That's when the boy's father arrived at the corner of Colden Street and 45th Avenue, police said, and the suspect fled in a dark blue four-dour sedan.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
