Update at the end
This is a horrific crime and it’s not the only one like it taking place throughout New York City. It’s probably to use the boy for sex. Is the man tied to one of the active cartels that sex traffick children? Let’s hope he’s caught and we find out,
An unknown man jumped out of the driver’s seat, ran up to the little boy, grabbed him, and shoved him into the back seat of the vehicle, the chilling footage shows.
