NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Viral video posted to social media on Monday shows a man apparently attempted to abduct a young girl on a subway train in the Bronx.
Footage uploaded to the popular Instagram page, @SubwayCreatures, shows the unidentified man lifting what appears to be a young girl out of her seat and carrying her out onto the Morrison Avenue-Soundview station platform on the 6 line.
The man didn’t go far and only brought the girl to a nearby bench, to which she fled from and reboarded the train.
Riders were visibly shaken and can be heard shouting profanities while calling for help.
According to commenters, the man was later caught by officers from the 43rd Precinct. Police have yet to confirm if the man had been apprehended.
