According to reports, at about 12:30 PM on Shabbos afternoon, a 5-year-old girl was sitting on her front steps of her home in the East End Avenue area, when two men in a pickup truck stopped and yelled at her to “get into the car.”
The child ran inside and told her parents, but the suspects fled.
The men were described as Hispanic, and driving a pickup truck with pictures of ice cream on it.
The incident comes after several similar incidents around town.
According to a P’sak from Rabbi Forscheimer, one who witnesses an attempted luring or abduction on Shabbos or Yom Tov, is to immediately phone police.
