On Thursday, a 43-year-old nanny was walking around with the 8-month-old baby boy she cares for in his stroller. They were on 8th Avenue in New York City, near 17th Street in the Chelsea area -- a very busy neighborhood, and also quite safe. It was around 4 p.m. And that's when a stranger approached and began acting as if the baby was hers. That woman has since been identified as 46-year-old Tara Anne McDonald who has 12 prior arrests due to attempted kidnapping of infants in this same manner.
What adds to this terrifying event is that the nanny reportedly was yelling for help since McDonald was threatening and grabbing at the stroller, trying to push it down the street. At least 10 people who were passing by did nothing to help her. Until a UPS worker saw what was happening and ran to assist.
