Police arrested one of the men accused of attempting to kidnap a 5-year-old boy walking with his family in Queens on Friday night.

McGonagall’s alleged partner, an older bald man photographed wearing jeans, an orange polo shirt and sunglasses, remains at large.
The incident was captured by security cameras, in which a maroon sedan was seen strolling on the sidewalk with a mother and her three children.
According to footage, police said McGonagall jumps out of the car, grabs the little boy and pushes him into the back seat of the car near Myrtle and Hillside Avenues around 8:45.
The frantic mother managed to get her son out of the open window of the car before the car could move forward.
Sources said the mother and her children were on their way to work to fetch food for their husband when the abduction took place.
