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.

If you have information or know this woman call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

Ok, so I know the squirrels of Madison Square Park are pretty tame and unnatural no-thanks to tourists constantly feeding them, but this one took it to a new level. This morning I witnessed a squirrel eating a full slice of pizza in Madison Square Park.
