Police were searching Sunday for a man who allegedly tried to kidnap a young boy last week in North Corona, Queens.
Authorities say Mark Synclair, 33, tried to grab the seven-year-old child outside P.S. 92 on Tuesday morning.
Police say the boy struggled with Synclair and was able to run away, unhurt.
Synclair, seen above, is described as 5-feet-9-inches tall and weighs about 200 pounds.
North Corona residents said the incident left them worried.
"Yeah, it's scary. I'm shaking right now," said one local child.
"Something like that happened, they should have knocked on every door and asked somebody if they saw something. That's what they should do," said another resident.
NY1 reached out to the Department of Education for comment on the alleged incident.
Anyone with information on Synclair's whereabouts should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
