Cops are looking to identify the man they say tried walking away with a child in a stroller outside a busy Gravesend supermarket Monday afternoon.

According to police, on Monday, May 7 at approximately 3:49 p.m. in front of Thanksgiving Supermarket (2239-2247 86th Street), the suspect – said to be a man anywhere from 25 to 40 years old – approached a three-year-old in a stroller who was accompanied by his grandmother.

When the child’s grandparent was looking away, the perp proceeded to push the stroller down the street. The grandmother, upon noticing, chased the suspect, who left the baby and the stroller and fled westbound on 86th Street.

The child was not injured.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.
