15 Year Old Boy Arrested for Attempted Kidnapping in Sprague

Posted: Updated:
SPRAGUE, WA - A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the attempted kidnapping of a toddler that was caught on surveillance video in the town of Sprague. 

Lincoln County Sheriff Wade Magers said Wednesday that his deputies have arrested the boy, who lives in Sprague. 

The boy's identity is being withheld because he is a juvenile. 

Magers says detectives focused on a suspect in the past 24 hours, and searched the boy's home. 

Magers says one of the kidnap victim's young siblings also positively identified the suspect. 

A dramatic surveillance video shows a man running down a sidewalk with the toddler in his arms Sunday. 

The child's two siblings screamed and chased him. 

The scene ended after two teenage boys joined the chase, and the man put down the toddler and fled.
