It seems the ‘Butcher of Brooklyn’ almost succeeded in kidnapping another boy just three doors away from his home.


Levi Aron, 35, of Brooklyn, New York, has admitted suffocating eight-year-old Leiby Kletzky with a bath towel in his apartment.


Now his neighbour Zisa Berkowitz alleges that he tried to kidnap her young son but she scared him off by screaming.

Police have already spoken to Ms Berkowitz and she told the New York Post that the story is ‘true’ and she is going through ‘a lot of trauma’.

The alleged incident happened in the last two years and was reportedly in addition to another failed kidnap attempt around a week before the Leiby murder.

Aron allegedly stalked another 11-year-old boy in Borough Park, Brooklyn, with the same car he used to kidnap Leiby, sources told The Daily.
