Dolores Diaz and her three children were walking in Queens when a 24-year-old snatched her five-year-old son Jacob, authorities say. The man, James McGonagle, apparently hopped into his maroon sedan and started driving with the child.
Diaz and her other children chased the vehicle, trying to pull the passenger door open.
“It’s quick. I said, ‘Oh my God, my kids, please,'” Diaz said of the incident. “Because I’m screaming, the people [started] coming, and they [helped] me. One lady [came] and called the police.”
“If they didn’t give my brother back I would have to punch them,” the boy’s brother said of the ordeal.
