Brooklyn, NY - A person of interest is in custody in connection with the attempted kidnappings of two boys walking home from school in Brooklyn within a span of two days, police say.

A man turned himself into police Wednesday night for questioning, NYPD said. No arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.

Police say one of the boys was walking home from school on May 7, along Fort Hamilton Parkway in Borough Park when a man offered him ice cream before grabbing his arm and trying to drag him.

Police say the boy bit the man’s arm before running away.

On May 9, a 10-year-old boy was walking home from school when he was approached at the corner of 53rd Street and Seventh Avenue in Sunset Park, by a man police believe to be the same suspect. The boy also escaped after fighting his way out of the man’s hands.


Police say the person being questioned at the precinct has not been considered a suspect, but they believe the individual may be connected to the incidents.
