A good Samaritan used martial arts to stop an attempted kidnapping at Madison Square Park this month.
Brian Kemsley, 33, was in the right place at the right time to interfere in the crime around 3 p.m. Nov. 9.
“I saw this man playing tug of war with a baby stroller, telling everyone it was his baby,” Kemsley said.
He was in the park with his girlfriend and stood back as others tried to pry the man from the stroller.

She should have never left so police can take the report amdnarrest him.for attempted kidnapping. If you listen to the video, it said the man was taken to the hospital but nothing on his being arrested.
NICE JOB BRIAN
I'm a New Yorker living in Florida the truth is in New York people mind their business or they'll just record the incident. People walk away rather than help because they don't wanna be part of anything that involves cops. I'm glad these people did the right thing even tho it's dangerous.
Feminist would say she didnt need help from a toxic masculine man
Finally theres some true men in America
The facet that people could just walk of and let this happen
I would have knocked him out.
How did they know it was not his baby ? Fortunately they were right .
im a 13 year old trans male id im scared this could happen to me even tho i have "male privlege"
That's what guns are for.
plot twist the baby was his and the girl tried to steel dababy and and succeeded
From the Brazilian jiu jitsu community, we would like to acknowledge this gentleman for using the least amount of force necessary to contain the situation until the property authority is arrived
If this were in downtown Chicago one of two things would happen, one : they record him. Two : the kidnapper gets shot. There is no in between
Man, that is such an awesome choke hold, I've seen it used plenty of times in UFC.
Why would anybody live there? Absolute sewer, full of sewer rats.
That was amazing
This looks like one of those videos where a mantis pins a bug and eats it
Awesome. Not one hit, kick or strike. Just folded the guy up into a pretzel. That's martial arts, that's discipline and confidence. That's how it's done.
Support liberals if you want a 9 minute response
Lucky that there were also…a bunch of other men there too that could have EASILY dog piled the assailant.
I WISH I could have seen if it were a ONE on ONE situation.
It’s “easier” to jump in when others are helping
This is from a 15 year jiu jitsu practitioner
Kid ended up being the guys kid. Got kidnapped by the lady. Good going 👏
Was he the dad of the child?
We need so many more people like this instead most pull out their phone to record it instead of actually doing anything great story!
We people like him on the police force ❤
Thank u man
Why won't the gov target sick people first Lord knows
Grace and a sense of humanity.
Let’s punch the bad guy
imagine if it was his kid
What if it was women who gonna kidnap lol
If the mother was allowed to be armed, it would have stopped the situation immediately.
BJJ guy was Brian Kemsley
