LANSINGBURGH, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Troy police have made an arrest in connection to two attempted abductions in the city.
“That could’ve been my kids outside going to school this morning,” she said. “It could’ve been anyone’s kid. It was very scary, and to find out I know one of the parents, it was definitely scary, heartbreaking.”
Police said Badger was arrested around 7:15 p.m. through the help of the victims, neighbors, city workers and surveillance video.
“Obviously, we’re very happy that he’s off the street, and the people of Lansingburgh can feel a little bit safer and a little bit better that we’ve captured the person who’s responsible for both of these incidences,” Troy Police Capt. Dan DeWolf said.
DeWolf said Badger has a criminal past and is currently on probation.
Badger will be arraigned at 8:30 a.m. Thursday in Troy City Court.
