Police are hoping a surveillance photo will help lead them to the man they say tried to abduct an 8-year-old girl in the Bronx on Thursday.
Investigators say the man walked up to the third grader heading into PS 33 in Fordham and tried to lure her away.
She was able to run inside and tell the principal, who then called police.
The would-be kidnapper is described as being between 20 and 30 years old and 5'10" tall.
Officers were outside the school Friday morning, which was a comfort to some parents.
Others, though, say they're still nervous.
"It's just nervewracking as a parent. You can't trust anybody anymore. It's scary, you know. They want to be big, they want to be grown, you want them to do what they want to do, but you can't," said one parent.
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 www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
