Today’s news:

Kidnap attempt in front of Community Board 18 building

Brooklyn Daily

Cops are on the hunt for a would-be kidnapper who attempted to abduct a young woman at gunpoint outside of the Community Board 18 building on Bergen Avenue on July 22.

The 23-year-old victim told police that she was near Avenue K at 2 am, when a man driving a dark-colored minivan pulled up along side her, leveled a pistol, and demanded she enter his car.

Fortunately, the young woman made a run for it and instead of pursuing her, the crook fled.

The suspect is described as a 20-year-old man, with a thin build last seen wearing Yankee’s baseball cap.

Anyone with information on the suspect or the crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-8477. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at, or by texting their tips to 274637 then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Reach reporter Colin Mixson at or by calling (718) 260-4514.
