NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – Police are searching for a man they say stopped a mother on a Queens street and demanded she give him her baby.

The 29-year-old woman was pushing the 10-month-old daughter in a stroller near 43rd Avenue and 111th Street in Corona on Thursday evening when the man put his hand on the stroller and stopped her, police said.

He then demanded that she give her baby to him, according to police.

The woman refused to hand over the infant and the man ran away, police said.

No injuries were reported.

The NYPD released surveillance video Saturday of the suspect taken at a nearby restaurant.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
