A suspect has been arrested after allegedly trying to kidnap a Jewish girl in Williamsburg Sunday morning, police tell Hamodia.

The incident occurred at around 10 a.m. on Harrison Avenue near Rutledge Street, when a Toyota SUV stopped in front of an 11-year-old girl who was walking home. The suspect displayed money to the girl and told her to get into the car.
