In December 2009, Kris Kringle impersonater Anthony Russo was arrested after a botched attempt to abduct a 12-year-old girl on her way to school. Armed with a box of candy canes and a unicycle (your guess is as good as ours), the Christmas creeper apparently hid in the bushes before lunging at the old-enough-to-know-better pre-teen. After breaking free of his arm grab, the girl smartly made her way over to the nearest store and reported the incident, leading to the would-be snatcher's arrest on an RTA bus. Forget the cookies and milk—looks like jail time is more likely on the menu for this faux St. Nick.
