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.
