This morning on "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien," Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter explained why he was offering a $10,000 reward for the capture of a man who attempted to abduct a 10-year-old girl while she was walking home from a store with her 2-year-old brother on Tuesday.
"We need to get this guy off the streets of Philadelphia as quickly as possible and we're just fortunate that nothing worse happened to this young lady or her little brother," Mayor Nutter says. "We're working this case. We're going to get this individual, this real scum off the streets of Philadelphia."
The attempted abduction was caught on surveillance video, which was released Wednesday on the Philadelphia Police Department's YouTube page.
In the interview, Mayor Nutter also addressed a new US Conference of Mayors report looking at the economic outlook of US cities. He says that thought the outlook is looking better than in years past, cities really need investments in infrastructure. See a clip from that portion in the video below.
