6:01 am
there, it is foggy. >> it is very foggy out there in our northern communities. >> it has like an instagram filter, it makes everything little fuzz. >> i that's the way i want to be pictured, with a instagram picture, a little foggy if we could get a big jar of vaseline to put on the lens. >> whenever you take a picture you say after it is done? >> filter up, then post it. >> there you go. i like that. >> you can also use the crotch of pantyhose to put over a camera lens. >> not the crotch? >> just the pantyhose. >> oh, okay. >> he's focus the on the wrong thing clearly. >> good day, it is april the fifth, 2017. off to a great start. >> yes. >> that's where they have the little colon part. then you wouldn't see anything. >> oh, opaque? >> so the actual stocking
6:02 am
part. >> i thought you knew this, mike? >> like a thigh? welshing i don't know anyone who wears panty snows. >> what i wear pantyhose. >> you wear them? >> sometimes in church my mom was like hey do you have wear pantyhose. >> the lord may be watching or something? >> stop. >> so i believe that a man invent the pantyhose f we could look that up in the control room, because that's the brain of my existence. >> they make your legs look smoother. >> hideous. >> all right, off on pantyhose rant and it is 6:02, sorry. >> all of this is taking away from the number of the day. >> oh, what is it? >> even with the fog, we're sticking with it. >> oh, yes! >> yes, ten out of ten today. bus stop buddy celebrating national carmel day. and some giant candy there. bring your sunglasses, you will need them today. but not tomorrow. today. humidity, 48%, not too far from sunrise time 38:00. we will see sunshine, look at
6:03 am
this, 651 here, but only in the 40's at the shore. that's where weaver more moisture, where we have some fog around this morning. so, there is no precipitation to speak of. but with this cold front nearby, we have reduced visibilities, especially near the coast, but we're also seeing it, i think, if you're near a boyde of water, that's helping with the moisture, and that's where the fog is. but in the enough for an advisory, just some fog around this morning, and eventually, up to 68 degrees, for high temperature today. sunset should be nice one today, and tomorrow, when it will rain, bob kelly. >> you got it, 03:00, sue, good morning, everybody, looking live, at the fog that we've been dealing here with this morning, route one, up in bucks county again casino every hit and miss, depending where you begin and end your trip. here is a look at i-95, where again, every 15 minute or so we get sock in with fog, but it is also leaving for that fine mist, out on the roadway,
6:04 am
heads up utility crews coming into downtown, fourth street out front of the station at market street, down to one lane, it is a peco power play. and who other than, are you ready? >> and the flyers are going on the peco power play. fourth street into one lane. will tie us up throughout the dayment trenton regional rail line running with some delays. no delays yet at the airport. but i think that's all going to change once that fog starts to take effect. mike and alex back to you. >> flyers on peco power play and off to the golf course. >> that's true. >> well, okay, now, take a look at this video, because i know you have seen it probably ten times. >> ordinary coffee run on a sunday morning, go off, you get some coffee. so a guy approaches the guy in the stroller. >> they step away for a second. and they're getting their
6:05 am
coffee. >> they're in the line. and he put his hands on, looks like, the face, the head of the baby, in the stroller. so, lauren johnson is over there at 15th and locust, by this dunkin' donuts, now, the cops have already talked to this guy, right? >> they talked to the guy, mike. but they haven't talked to the couple, and now investigators are saying this is a peculiar set of circumstances. is it an innocent encounter, or an attempted abduction, trying to find out exactly what happened here inside this dunkin' donuts sunday morning as you mentioned during routine coffee run around 10:00 a.m. watch the encounter happen on surveillance video again, it was sunday morning, standing near the stroller inside the dunkin donut, man approaches from behind, leaned into the stroller where the baby is sitting, and another man jumps into action, sort of strong arming that manna way from the woman, and the baby. the couple then turn around and leave the store. but someone who was inside called police. they were concerned about what they saw, police come to the
6:06 am
scene here, the man is still there. they question him. but the couple, no where to be found. >> it certainly looks like he approached the child with some level of aggression, so much so, another thing, that we reacted to, is the reaction of the parent. you see, looks like the father of the male figure, chases him out the door. so their reaction makes us believe it was something a little more malignant than what a cute kid. >> so police say they don't want it release too much information about the man, because he's if the been charged with a crime. honestly he may not be charged if they can't find out any more information. and with no audio on that surveillance video, it is tough for investigators to know the nature of that encounter. so again, was the man just admiring the baby, as a lot of people often do when they see cute kids, or was he trying to snatch that baby out of the stroller? that's a question investigators say the couple will help them be able to answer. mike and alex. >> oh, good, let's find that kim. what time of day was it sunday? >> sunday morning around 10:00 . >> 10:00 a.m.
6:07 am
okay. >> i wonder if he was saying anything? obviously there is not audio. i wonder if he saiding? >> people in the dunkin' donuts would know that information, too. i mean, i don't know. same thing kind of happened to me when my kids were small in a stroller in penn station in new york city but this guy was hi, high on some casino every drug, he came over and got into the stroller, and i went over and shoved him to the grounds, the police came over. but -- >> did he touch? was it jessica? >> touching the babe. >> i oh, my gosh. >> wasn't going to runoff or anything, just agh. >> did you call police? >> the transit cops came right over, yes. >> but i don't know. i don't know. >> as a parent probably just like oh, i don't know you, what are you doing? >> course, they did the right thing. but let's say i did that? >> well, you can do anything. >> i wasn't stumbling around. >> he can do anything in this sit. >> i okay, say like an elderly white woman does that. nobody freaks out. i don't know. guy looked high to me. but what do i know?
6:08 am
i need to keep my mouth shut. 6:07. just go with the fact. the nfl draft is just weeks away. we will be a part of that, aling. >> i'm very excited for this. a lot of changes in construction going on right now. but it is already posing a problem for drivers in philadelphia. probably because of that construction, blogging off things, trying to get it all set up. >> anything for the city we like to find something negative, all right? of course i don't live -- >> if you live in this area, weren't table drive around, you feel the same way. >> okay, sabina, so the parking signs have already gone up on the post there is started yesterday? >> oh, yes. started around 11:00 last night. check it out. not a lot of people have moved their cars just yet. snow is a sign that just went up. it started last night, goes for about a month, check it out. may six, 11:00. so over a month you can't park on this side of pennsylvania avenue. but you can see, cents not really stopping people just yet. public service announcement, one of these is your car, make sure to move it before ppa gets out here. now this morning, they told us that there might be some road
6:09 am
