Los Angeles authorities are looking for a woman whom they say unsuccessfully tried twice to kidnap toddlers in two days.

Video footage emerged showing the suspect trying to grab a 4-year-old from a McDonald's while his family ordered the food. A witness intervened and stopped the woman as she headed to her car.

Police said that the following morning, the suspect tried the same thing with another boy who was walking with a family member near an intersection.

The woman was described as being 25-30 years old, 5 feet 4 inches tall and with a scar on her forehead.

Authorities urged anyone with information about the suspect to come forward and contact Los Angeles police at 213-486-6840.
