A woman was arrested Wednesday in connection with the attempted kidnapping of a 7-year-old boy on a Metrobus August 31, according to Metro Transit Police.

Metro Transit Police say the boy was riding the bus to school with his 13-year-old sister. Detectives believe 39-year-old Thalia Denise Brown of NW, D.C. jumped on about a mile up the road at Eastern Market and asked the child where his parents were and then said, "When I get off the bus you are coming with me. We are going to the feds."

Police say a good Samaritan and other passengers prevented the kidnapping from happening and placed the children on another bus. The incident was reported to the children's school once they arrived.

The attempted kidnapping occurred here near H and 8th Street in Northeast Washington, according to police.
