NYPD seeks man who grabbed at two 10-year-olds

Posted: Updated:
BOROUGH PARK -

A 10-year-old boy was walking home from school along Fort Hamilton Parkway in Borough Park two weeks ago when a strange man offered him ice cream, police say.

According to police, the boy said no. Then the man grabbed his arm and tried to drag him off.

Two days later, police say the same suspect tried the same move on another 10-year-old boy on Seventh Avenue. That boy also escaped after fighting his way out of the man's hands.

Police are asking for the public's help catching the grabber.
