A sneak attempted to kidnap a 9-year-old boy from a Brooklyn synagogue on Wednesday – but was foiled when the child’s mother showed up and saw him trying to carry her son away, police said.
The boy was attending a party at Hesed Le Avraham Synagogue on East 7th Street in Gravesend around 9:30am when a man who had been praying inside approached him, police officers said.
The stranger asked the child to go outside with him – and when the child refused, he lifted her by the shoulders and tried to carry her out the front door, according to police.
The mother spotted the creep carrying her son and jumped in – and asked the boy if he knew the man from the synagogue, police said.
When he told her no, she snatched her son from the man’s arms, police said.
The suspect then ran away and hid in a nearby yeshiva, according to law enforcement sources.
Cops had K9s in Brooklyn on the hunt for the 42-year-old man, who was taken into custody about an hour later, police said.
