Philadelphia, Penn. (Northland's NewsCenter) --- It's a parent's worst nightmare: having your child grabbed off the street by a stranger.

That's almost what happened on a street in Philadelphia, but this time the kidnapper was caught on tape.

Philadelphia police are currently searching for the man seen in this surveillance video who attempted to abduct a ten year old girl.

The girl was walking home from the store along with her two year old brother, when an unidentified man got out of a four door white car and followed them.

The suspect put his hand over the girl's mouth and tried to drag her off, but she struggled and fell to the ground.

The man ran back to his car and drove off.

Police are hoping that with the help of this security video, residents around the area will be able to identify the would-be kidnapper.
