Rochester Police are looking for a woman who took a 5-year-old boy away from his mother before his brother ran after him and grabbed him away on Tuesday afternoon.

The boy, his mother and brother were approached by the woman in Rochester Commons around 5 p.m.who told the child "I am taking you for a walk" before taking his hand and walked away with him, according to police. His older brother ran after and got the boy back.

The boy's mother confronted the woman verbally about what she tried to do before getting into a black SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Equinox type vehicle, with tinted windows.
