The NYPD is looking for a man suspected of attempting to abduct young boys in Boro Park and Sunset Park.

Around 3:0o p.m. last week Monday at the corner of Fort Hamilton Parkway and 58th Street in Boro Park, the man approached a 10-year-old boy walking home from school and asked if he wanted ice cream. The boy refused and attempted to flee, but the man grabbed him by his knapsack. The boy then tried to bite the man, and the man fled.

Last week Wednesday, also around 3:00 p.m., at the corner of 53rd Street and 7th Ave. in Sunset Park, a 10-year-old boy was walking home from school when the man grabbed his arm. The boy tried to kick the man, and the man fled.

Police describe the man as Asian, approximately 5’9″ tall, weighing 180 lbs., with brown eyes and black hair. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a black jacket with white sleeves, a multi-colored shirt, dark jeans and brown sandals.

Anyone with information about the suspect can submit it by calling 1-800-577-TIPS, visiting www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or texting to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577.
