The search continues for the suspect who tried to grab a four-year-old boy off a Manhattan sidewalk earlier this week.

According to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, the man in the above surveillance video put his arms around the boy, saying something like “you’re coming with me kid."

It happened shortly after the boy, his twin sister, and their nanny exited a taxi cab at Avenue B and 6th Street in the East Village at around 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The nanny screamed and the man ran away.

The suspect is described as between 45 to 55 years old, between five-feet-six-inches and five-feet-eight-inches tall with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt with writing on the front and faded black jeans.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
