Los Angeles Police are searching for a woman they say has tried to kidnap two four-year-old children at two different locations in the last two days.
Authorities say the unidentified woman was caught on surveillance video around 3.15pm Tuesday as she tried to snatch a small child inside the McDonald's restaurant located at 1310 East Olympic Blvd in downtown L.A's fashion district.
The video shows a four-year-old boy standing near a window as his family ordered food.
The suspected female kidnapper, described as a 5 foot 4 inches, 115 pounds, 25 to 30-year old with black hair and unknown eye color, approached him from the right.
'The suspect was stopped by a witness in the area and fled from the scene on foot,' police said.
Authorities say the female suspect in the first incident has a possible scar or birthmark on her forehead, an unknown tattoo on her chest and another unknown tattoo on her upper back and left shoulder.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the LAPD's Robbery Homicide Division, at (213) 486-6840 or call 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247) during non-business hours and weekends.
