LOS ANGELES, Calif. (CNN) – A kidnapping attempt was caught on camera inside a Los Angeles McDonald’s Tuesday.
LAPD released surveillance footage showing the startling moment a woman tries to kidnap a young boy.
The boy is seen walking back and forth while a girl sits in a booth looking at a phone.
The boy then walks to the other side of the restaurant where a different camera catches the attempted abduction.
The suspect was stopped outside in the parking lot by a witness who saw that she was attempting to put the little boy inside a vehicle, police said.
The woman ran away, leaving the child behind.
The suspect, who is described as a Hispanic or Black woman aged 25 to 30 years old, is thought to have attempted to kidnap another child Wednesday morning.
