BROOKLYN — A 10-year-old boy followed a man who took his younger sister from their public school in Brooklyn, police said.
At that point, the man released the girl's hand.
Officials now say the man was in his 90s and picked up the wrong child from school.
An Education Department spokeswoman said the incident happened during an after school program that wasn't run by the DOE.
Correction: Police initially described this incident as a kidnapping by a man in his 50s.
