A woman allegedly attempted to grab an 8 month old baby out of a stroller near 8th Avenue and 17th Street in Chelsea on Thursday around 4pm. We don’t normally report on things outside of the Madison Square Park vicinity, but given the nature of the crime, we wanted to alert parents and nannies of babies that this crazy woman is out there. (She somehow got away)
The woman allegedly approached the baby and nanny and started talking to them, then grabbed at the stroller and tried to walk away with it and the baby. She was reportedly wearing a beige coat and hat, with jeans and appeared to be in her 50′s and possibly homeless.
If you have information or know this woman call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
