LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police are looking for a woman who tried to kidnap a 4-year-old boy from a McDonald’s restaurant in south Los Angeles.

Police say the woman went into the restaurant on East Olympic Boulevard at about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, picked up the boy and carried him outside.


According to officials, a witness intervened and the woman let the child go.

However, police said the same woman may have tried to snatch another 4-year-old boy Wednesday in the same area.
