An 8-year-old boy was walking with friends in southwest Baltimore when he was taken by someone driving a green Ford Taurus Monday night, Baltimore City police said.

Darrick Charles Brown was walking in the 300 block of Gwynn Ave. at about 6:30 p.m., when, witnesses told police, a light green, newer model Ford Taurus with two people suddenly stopped near a group of kids.

One of the people inside the Taurus got out and grabbed Brown and threw him into the trunk and sped away, police said.

Brown was wearing a black shirt with a red and white rocket on the front and black shorts.

Anyone with information urged to call police at 410-396-2100.
