Police say a mother reported that Holyoake tried to grab her son while they were walking near the corner of Market and Noe streets just after midday on Friday.

Roscoe Holyoake, 34, has been identified by the SFPD as the suspect in the attempted toddler kidnapping, and as Scenestr reports, Holyoake is a well known Perth-based DJ who most recently closed out Sydney Mardi Gras with a set and DJ'd at a festival called Joondalup just a week ago.

Roscoe Bradley Holyoake, a 34-year-old from Perth known as DJ Roski, was dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit when he appeared in a San Francisco court on Tuesday charged with kidnapping and child endangerment.

The alleged attempted abduction was reported by the boy's mother, who said she fought with Mr Holyoake to release the boy.

Walker, a dentist, said he and other bystanders had chased after Holyoake on foot.

Sabrina Walker stayed with the distraught mother and her children. "I think my fatherly instincts kicked in and I did what I thought was right", Walker told KTVU.

Roscoe is reportedly a well-known DJ in Perth, performing under the stage name DJ Roski.

Holyoake remained in San Francisco County Jail on $500,000 bail. In addition to regular club night appearances and performances surrounding Sydney Mardi Gras, he has also volunteered for community radio station RTRFM.

In December a year ago Holyoake was a performer at Tim Minchin's wrap party for his new mini-series "upright", an experience he described as an "absolute pleasure", 9 News reported.
