Police say the parents left the scene of the disturbing incident before officers arrived.

The suspect was arrested however, and police say he is known to them.

A witness said before he attempted to grab the child the man said: “‘That’s my baby”

Philadelphia police Capt. Sekou Kinebrew told local television station KYW : “It’s a rather peculiar set of circumstances, and we are actually asking for the parents — or who we believe to be the parents — to come forward and maybe give us a better idea of what happened out there.”
