In the footage, a man appears to be trying to lure a 3-year-old boy who was sitting on a stoop. The incident happened on Monday at around 8 a.m.
In the clip, the suspect approaches the home, gestures towards the child, but the boy ignores him.
Then, the toddler’s mother comes outside to confront the man, who fled, according to the New York Post.
