Boy Charged in Toddler Kidnapping Caught on Video

Posted: Updated:
 DAVENPORT, Wash. (AP) - A 15-year-old boy arrested in connection with the attempted kidnapping of a young child in a small eastern Washington community has been charged in juvenile court.

The boy, who appeared in court Friday, was arrested after authorities say he tried to take a 22-month-old toddler from a city park in Sprague on Sunday - an incident that drew wide attention after it was caught on surveillance video.

He was arraigned on second-degree kidnapping charges. The boy entered a plea of not guilty. His next court appearance is April 10. The maximum penalty for the kidnapping charge is confinement until age 21.

Sprague is a farm town of about 500 people about 40 miles west of Spokane.
