the guy had a dr's appointment and figured he would just step out, I guess. A concerned citizen called police when they saw the 4 year old running down the street with no adult.

When dad returned home he carefully explained to police he thought they would be fine.

Fortunately for him, this guy was not in his neighborhood:

This lunatic kidnapped a 3 year old boy right in front of his grandmother. Concerned neighbors came running and surrounded the guy until police arrived. The man was overheard saying "...I'm not going to jail. It's alright-he wanted to come with me." Grandmother had never even seen the man before.
