WOODMERE, N.Y. — Police say a man tried to take a baby from a nanny, followed her back to a Long Island home, and left with an empty stroller.

Authorities say a 65-year-old nanny was walking a 20-month-old baby in a stroller in Woodmere Monday when a man told her she was “pushing a dead baby.” He then insisted he needed to take the baby.

The woman tried to get away but police say he followed her and entered the home through an unlocked mudroom. The nanny then locked the kitchen door.

Police say he left with the empty stroller, which was later found at a pizza shop in Hewlett.

Investigators have released footage and are asking for help identifying the suspect.

The nanny and the child were uninjured.
