    Borough Park, Brooklyn, NY +Possible Abduction+ NYPD of the 66th Pct has called a level one mobilization for a possible abduction of a child that was missing earlier tonight and claims she has been abducted.

    The 4-year-old child went missing from 19th Avenue and 52nd street earlier tonight. The child was found by an old lady who leaves on 61st Street between 15th and 16th Avenues.
    She claims that a white male with a white shirt with a black design across the front took her into a black car, abused her, and when she start crying he threw her out of the car.

    NYPD detectives of the 66th Pct are taking it very seriously, and are investigating it as a sexual abduction of a child.

    The child is now safe and back at home.

    U/D: 06:28
    NYPD Detectives of the 66th Pct, Captains, Inspectors, along with Chiefs and the Special Victims Squad, as well as Boro Park Shomrim Patrol, worked feverishly throughout the night.
    Active crime scene still ongoing at 52nd Street and 19th Avenue. Evidence was collected all night, including some tapes from private security video cameras on the street, which might have captured some evidence of the incident.

    PD are calling in reinforcement of detectives, Crime Stoppers and Community Affairs, and will also increase patrol on the streets.

    U/D 4:16 PM
    Assemblyman Dov Hikind is calling on witnesses to contact the 66th Precinct with any information regarding the abduction. “There is great concern in the community,” said Hikind. “We are urging parents and caregivers to be especially alert and vigilant. There are sick predators out there who may be watching our children and waiting for the opportunity when they are unattended.”

    I believe that the main problem is greatly overlooked. That children in Boro Park are parked near the houses instead of in the parks. There is a great need for playgrounds in this area and public pressure should be placed on the government using such situation as proof. The possibility exists in Boro Park. A severe change in planning of houses and community should arise. This idea would take care of the other problems mentioned.

    People blame the parents because they needto believe it couldn’t happen to them. If they can find some “flaw” in the the family or some “mistake” made by the parents, they believe, on some subconscious level, they’ve figured out why this wouldn’t happen to their child/their family.

    your’e comment hit it on the nail.
    When all of the judgemental nincompoops blame the parent, are they saying that if it would Chas V’Shalom happen to them it would also be their fault.

    How cruel can anyone be to suggest that the mother should be sent to jail.

    Anyone who thinks that way is a very hateful and angry person and needs to get some serious help.

    Kind of like the pervert who did this crime. Don’t you think?

    All you guys blaming the mother for what happened (as well as the attempted rape in Williamsburg blaming the woman) are a bunch of hyprocrates. IT IS THE PERPTRATER FAULT PERIOD and not the victim. All that is needed is for the parent to look away for 2 seconds. How many times have we heard stories in the news that kids were abducted right in front of an adult and nobody saw anything or was able do anything? It is simply outrages to blame the victim, in this case the mother. If it would have happened to your child you wouldn’t think that it is your fault at all. Yes, we need to be careful and make sure that the kids are watched over properly at all times but we also need great Siyata Dishmaya every second of life. And instead of blaming the mother we need to support the family and child who are going through this.

    No jail or further punishment is necessary – just what she has gone through is enough to punish her for life! I am 100% sure the mother has learned her lesson from this experience and will never, ever leave her children – whatever the age outside alone again! And that is definitely the only purpose of punishment – to teach the lesson.

    In Miami we have had a lot of crimes committed against Jews by Gentile men dressed frum. They work for Yidden and they learn to talk the talk and walk the walk.

    It is important to teach our children not to talk to strangers, no matter how they look,to run and get an adult if a stranger tries to talk to you, to touch you or if you see a stranger watching you play.

    My parents taught us this 40 years ago. There were always sick-os who preyed upon the frum community either out of revenge because they were anti Semites, for some perceived wrong done to them by the “Jews”.

    There have been a number of incidents of Mexican handymen and other workers against young frum girls in Monsey and Lakewood. We have to teach our children to protect themselves and we have to protect our children.

    We should protest frum businesses who hire illegal aliens to save money, it endangers our children. We should protest when our neighbors hire undocumented maids, caretakers and handymen, as these are criminals by definition and they associate with other criminals.

    Our community needs to be more vigilante if we want to protect our children

    Obviously the weather has done a job on you today.
    This poor, innocent BABY was a victim of a brutal crime by some sick creep. How DARE you blame these particular parents?? Do you even know them? I do. This is not a family with 15 children, nor is it a family where the children are neglected. These are concerned, loving, doting parents. HOW DARE YOU!!! Yes, there are SOME parents who are not tuned in to their parenting needs, but that is not the issue here and you should ask forgiveness for your horrible words and attitude. May you never be in their shoes! NOw go take some valium and go back to sleep.

    THe parents of this child have only themselves to blame.
    As Hikind said, why and where are the parents not paying attention to their kids.

    I see it play itself out in the bungalow colony all the time.

    these young moms let their kids roam out of their sight the entire day and the high chutzpah of this all is that these young crazy stressed out inexperienced moms expect the other parents in the bungalo colony to look after their kids while they engage in their own activities.

    Let this be a wake up call to these young inexperienced mothers out there. Get serious about parenting. We are talking about teire neshomos here.

    1) It’s very possible he was wearing a light colored shirt (it was   night and a little kid can’t see the diffirence between light blue etc.)

    2) It can be that a sick criminal tried to dress like a heimishe guy (so that she would see someone that’s dressed similar to her daddy)

    NY SUN.

    In a crime emblematic of every parent’s worst fear, a stranger plucked a 4-year-old girl from in front of her home on a quiet residential Boro Park street Monday evening as she played near other children, and then sexually assaulted her.

    She was found two hours later, wandering alone, after a crowd of panicked neighbors had canvassed the area.

    The assault has roiled the tight-knit Brooklyn neighborhood, which has a large chasidic population, following a series of similar incidents last year.

    “The community is up in arms,” a coordinator of the neighborhood watch group Boro Park Shomrim Patrol, Yanky Daskal, said. “People are scared.”

    Neighborhood parents yesterday said they were on guard even as police flooded the neighborhood in search of the suspect, who is at large.
    Sima Winkler, who lives on 52nd Street near the victim’s home, is the mother of six girls. She said the street had been full of children playing when the girl was abducted.

    “Nobody saw anything. She disappeared,” Ms. Winkler said.

    “We’re shocked,” she said. “We thought we were more safe.”

    She added: “Even the kids, they have nightmares now. They’re afraid of going out.”

    Another neighbor said the whole block had joined in the search for the girl after she went missing.

    According to police, the girl was forced into a vehicle at about 7:15 p.m. by a man who took her to an unknown location, exposed himself, and forcibly touched her.

    She was found about two hours later, wandering alone nearly 10 blocks away. Police said a resident called 911 after noticing the victim walking along a sidewalk.

    The girl was then taken to a nearby hospital.

    Police said they were searching for a suspect described as a Caucasian man in a black T-shirt driving a black vehicle.

    Assemblyman Dov Hikind, a Democrat of Brooklyn, said yesterday that the girl was found without her underwear, which was later found at a different location.

    “Whoever did this did not just take her for a ride,” he said, “”This guy is sick.”

    At a press conference in his district office, Mr. Hikind urged anyone with information about the abduction to come forward and contact police. He also called on parents to be alert.

    “We can pass all the laws in the world,” he said. “It won’t make any difference if you don’t protect your children.”

    “This never would have happened if there had been an adult outside,” he added. He asked anyone who has information about the crime, or may have seen something suspicious, to contact the 66th Precinct.

    Mr. Daskal described the atmosphere in the area yesterday as “very tense, nerve wracking.”

    Throughout the day, a dozen uniformed police officers posted in the area spoke with residents, and a police trailer and numerous patrol cars were stationed nearby.

    Some mothers pushed strollers through the once sleepy neighborhood, but even with the increased police presence, few children could be seen playing outside.

    The assault followed a string of similar incidents last year. According to Mr. Hikind’s office, there were five attempted abductions of girls of various ages in Boro Park in April and May of last year.

    An NYPD spokesman, Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne, said police had arrested a man last year who was accused of exposing himself to several girls. The man was imprisoned, but Mr. Browne said that following standard procedure, police would investigate whether Monday’s abduction was related to prior cases.

    “It’s someone we would check on again,” Mr. Browne said.

    He said the police had questioned the victim twice as of yesterday and were talking to witnesses.

    Mr. Daskal said he believes the community was especially devastated by the string of assaults because of the conservative sexual mores of the chasidic community.

    “Children don’t know anything about it, only when they get married,” he said. “When a thing like this happens in a chasidic community, it can blow the parents’ minds away.”

    He said the Shomrim Patrol, whose volunteer members operate under the auspices of the NYPD and respond to reports of suspicious activity, was assisting the police in the search for the suspect.

    “Everybody should know it can happen in their neighborhood,” he said. “It can happen to anybody

Read before jumping to conclusions and making ridiculious statements about the need for bungalow colonies to be “asur”.

    NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Residents are on edge in Boro Park, Brooklyn today after local leaders said a 4-year-old girl was abducted and sexually assaulted there Monday night.

    The girl was taken into a vehicle by an unknown suspect at 52nd Street between 19th and 20th Avenues. The suspect took the child to an unknown location where he exposed himself and forcibly touched the victim, police said.

    She was found nearly two hours later by an area resident and was taken to the hospital.

    Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind is calling on witnesses to contact the 66th Precinct with any information regarding the abduction.

    So a 5 year old kid did not start crying when he took her to the car? Only after she was abused she started to cry? Something sounds strange with this whole story.

    And to all those folks who assume that a white shirt means someone from the community, shame on you. White shirts are worn throughout the world, not just Brooklyn.

    why is it that people are so quick to post stupid comments? Do you not get enough attention at home because your family has told you to stop shooting off your mouth with stupidity and they just tell you to shut up?
    No one asked for your thoughts on the reason the child was abducted, everyone simply wants more details of what happened!
    It is not the Bungalow, or the car he drives, or the neighborhood he grew up in. When he is caught you will get those details. In the meantime “If you have nothing to say, Don’t say it”.

    What happened was that she was playing in front of her house with a block full of children and parents watching. After an hour of playing someone realized they don’t see her.
    It was originally thought she may have wandered off.

    To the poster about the country, it is obvious that the city polluted air has hampered your ability to think clearly.

    Child predators are found in many communities, and they are a danger to all. Anyone who blames the parents or child, is in need of some serious self review.

    As a community we should all come together in support of the family and child who are going through an untold hardship. Let’s all be vigilant, and report anything suspicious. History shows, such predators will strike again.
