Crime in New York City has been out of control since Mayor Bill de Blasio caved to the far-left movement.
The defunding of the police department has led to a surge in violent and brazen crimes throughout the city.
Criminals have become more emboldened than ever, as was evident on Friday night during the brazen child abduction attempt of a boy walking with his family.
They Got Him
Security cameras in the area captured the failed attempt at taking the child away from his mother.
As the mother and her children were walking down the street, a maroon car can be seen pulling up alongside the family.
One man jumps out of the car, grabs one of her children, then shoves the child into the back seat.
As the vehicle was pulling away, the mother was able to pull the child back out of the car through the window.
James McGonagle has been identified by the police as the man who attempted to grab the child.
He is now in custody and is being charged with kidnapping, reckless endangerment, and acting in a manner injurious to a child.
His accomplice, who has only been identified as an older, balding man, is still at large.
