Registered sex offender arrested

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash -- After months of investigating a registered sex offender, Yakima Police arrest him for trying to abduct a young girl.

Police say Jesse McReynolds, 24, exposed himself, and then tried to pull an eleven year old girl into his car outside Franklin Middle School last October.

The girl escaped, but was able to remember part of the suspect's license plate and car description. That led police to McReynolds. The victim later picked him out of a photo montage.

McReynolds faces a number of charges including kidnapping.
