Attempted abduction caught on tape

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

A scary crime almost took place in the middle of a donut shop. On Sunday, a man tried to snatch a baby from a Philadelphia Dunkin Donuts at 1425 Locust Street. 

The Philadelphia police has released a surveillance video of the incident that shows how a stranger nearly pulled the child from its stroller before being stopped.

From the description on the video, the Philadelphia Police Department's Special Victim's Unit is now seeking help in finding the parents of the child. The faces are blurred in the video but authorities hope someone familiar with the crime can step forward; the parents left the location before police arrived. The man who attempted to grab the baby was still at the Dunkin Donuts and authorities have been able to identify him.

Tips can be called in confidentially at 215.686.TIPS (8477) or via text to 773847.
