Police say they have arrested a woman who attempted to kidnap a child from a playground in Central Park.

According to the NYPD, the incident occurred last Tuesday, May 12th at 10:30 a.m., in the Hecksher Playground in the mid-park area between 61st and 63rd Streets: A female suspect "entered the Heckscher playground, located within Central Park, where she picked up a 2 year old boy, who was seated on a swing and attempted to exit the park." Luckily, the boy's nanny, who had been pushing the toddler's brother on another swing, was able to stop the suspect from leaving the park and took the boy back. The suspect then fled, and police released a sketch of her a few days later.

Cecile Jackson, 35, was arrested today. The police didn't have any further details, but Upper West Side families were on alert after an email circulated yesterday about a possible sighting of the suspect, "I was at the playground at 86th and CPW and saw numerous police officers looking for the woman that attempted to kidnap a child from the playground last week. Apparently she was spotted on 84th and CPW this afternoon. The police officer advised us to watch our children closely as they believe she will attempt to kidnap another child until she is apprehended."

The Daily News reports that Jackson, who has an "extensive documented history of psychological problems," was "arrested in the park Tuesday after two parents alerted cops that she was 'beckoning their child toward her' about 3:30 p.m., a police source said."
