David Howard is being held in Bergen County Jail on $500,000 bail. He’s charged with attempted murder, kidnapping and other offenses.

The incident occurred at the Ramsey NJ Transit station on Monday. Howard allegedly grabbed the 7- and 9-year-old brothers and tried to pull them toward the tracks. The boys’ mother and grandmother saved them.

Ramsey Police Chief Bryan Gurney tells the Record of Woodland Park  that during an initial court appearance this week, the 47-year-old Howard said he didn’t remember anything.

Police who responded to a 911 call said Howard appeared intoxicated, but Gurney told the newspaper no blood tests were done.
