BREAKING: Cops arrest two suspects wanted in attempted kidnapping of teen

Cops have arrested two suspects in connection with the attempted kidnapping of a 15-year-old girl in the South Slope area.

60-year-old Boerum Hill resident Raymond Ortiz  and 33-year-old Gravesend resident Delgria Lynch were arrested during the evening hours of Friday, September 29.

On Friday, September 22 at around 2:40 p.m. on 19th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, the teen was approached by the alleged suspects in a black vehicle. After the female suspect talked to the victim, the male perp, who was the driver, exited the vehicle, grabbed the teen’s arm and tried to pull her into the car. However, the teen was able to break free of his grip and fled the location.

Ortiz and Lynch have been charged with attempted kidnapping in the second degree, act in a manner injurious to a child and harassment in the second degree.
