Man accused of trying to snatch tot on sidewalk has long rap sheet

The man who cops say tried to snatch a three-year-old boy from a Brooklyn sidewalk was stone-faced Thursday as he was walked out of a police station house — where he told cops he was simply moving the child’s stroller out of the way because the sidewalk was crowded, authorities said.

Omar Dominguez, 26, was led by detectives out of 62nd Precinct in Bath Beach just before 11 a.m., keeping his head down until The Post asked him about the incident, to which he had no reply.

Dominguez, wearing white Tyvek jumpsuit, was then taken into a waiting sedan bound for Brooklyn criminal court.

A 63-year-old woman and her grandson were outside Thanksgiving Supermarket on 86th Street in Gravesend on Monday when Dominguez grabbed the stroller and casually strolled away, police say surveillance video shows.

Dominguez was nabbed Wednesday night after an anonymous caller alerted police to his whereabouts.

After he was arrested, Dominguez told officers he was just moving the stroller to make room on the busy sidewalk, police said.

The Gravesend resident, who lives less than a mile from where he walked away with the tot, has 21 prior arrests — largely for drug offenses and grand larceny, according to law enforcement sources.

His most recent arrest was in December 2016 in Brooklyn for obstruction of governmental administration.

Police charged Domiguez on Thursday with kidnapping, attempted kidnapping, petit larceny and acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17.
