    Police investigate possible abduction in Brooklyn after man puts boy in trunk and drives away

    The bizarre scene unfolded after a dark Nissan Altima double parked on a Bay Ridge street and a boy stepped out of the passenger seat and crawled into the trunk of the car. The man behind the wheel then drove away......

    Footage from nearby security camera shows the trunk of the car pop open after it stopped.

    A boy, who police believe is between 10 and 15 years old, suddenly gets out of the passenger seat and crawls into the trunk.......

    Police said investigators haven’t matched the possible victim to any missing persons reports and were unsure if the footage actually showed a crime or a prank.

    But the possibility raised concern for many in the neighborhood.


    A crime or a prank?

    Do they have the plates?

    Maybe a parent with ill-considered discipline methods? If you keep talking back to me you're going to travel in the trunk...

    There is a video at the link, but it's blurry and there is an obstruction that covers the tag, possibly from the store/building the cam is on.

    It's so hard to tell what's going on in that video. It LOOKS to me like a man is holding the child or lifting him out of the back/passenger seat, then it looks like the boy climbs in the trunk and the man sort of pushes him in all the way with his foot?

    Can we direct link the video here? I'm on an iPhone but someone with a larger, better screen may be able to see more detail.

    That would be the best case scenario I guess. And that's not a very happy scenario. I hope the boy is ok

    That looked wrong. The child must have been in the back seat because the passenger got back into the passenger side of the car. The passenger seemed very relaxed the whole time.

    This is what the link says:

    A boy, who police believe is between 10 and 15 years old, suddenly gets out of the passenger seat and crawls into the trunk......

    The passenger got into the trunk before the driver got out and closed the trunk before getting back behind the wheel and driving away.

    Here's the video:

    Police are taking it seriously

    Bay Ridge cops aggressively investigating mystery ‘abduction’

    http://www.brooklyneagle.com/article...3-12-27-143000

    68 Pct. head says lack of force doesn’t mean there’s no crime......

    Two days after the New York Police Department (NYPD) put out word that cops were investigating the possible abduction of a teenage boy on a Bay Ridge street, there was no sign of the boy or the alleged kidnapper. There was also no ransom demand issued or any witnesses coming forward to tell what they know.

    Dep. Insp. Richard DiBlasio, commanding officer of the 68th Precinct, the precinct that covers Bay Ridge, said his cops are “aggressively investigating” the Dec. 22 incident. The NYPD, which issued a bulletin on Christmas eve day, is looking for the public's help in solving the case.......

    A video camera aimed at the street on Marine Avenue between Fourth Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway captured what appeared to be the image of young man exiting a black car and climbing into the trunk of that car. A man exits the vehicle, walks to the back of the car, and closes the trunk with the boy still inside. The man then re-enters the car and drives off, traveling east on Marine Avenue toward Fort Hamilton Parkway........

    DiBlasio said he’s not taking any chances.

    He sent out a mass email through the 68th Precinct Community Council’s email notification system, which has thousands of subscribers, to bring Bay Ridge residents up to date on the probe.......

    Anyone with any information on the vehicle or the possible victim is asked to call the NYPD’s Crimestoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS or call Detective Brian Meyers from the 68th Precinct at 718-439-4236.
