NEWTON, NC (WBTV) -
A man was arrested in Newton after he tried to kidnap a young girl by offering her candy to get into his vehicle, according to police.
Officials say the 11-year-old girl was walking along S. College Avenue around 6:20 p.m. Wednesday night when a man driving a white Chevrolet Impala approached her near a parking lot and offered her the candy.
The girl ran for help at a nearby business, and the man took off, police say.
A description of the vehicle went out, and officers soon pulled over 21-year-old Malcolm Devonte Bodie.
During a "pat down," a Blow Pop was found in Bodie's pants pocket, police told WBTV. Later, investigators conducted a search of Bodie's car, where they found several packages of chewing gum and more than a half dozen hard candy suckers.
Bodie was then arrested and charged with attempted second degree kidnapping.
The young girl was taken to the Children's Advocacy and Protection Center of Catawba County where a forensic interview was conducted.
Bodie was taken to the Catawba County Detention Center and placed under a $50,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to face a judge on Friday.
Newton Police Chief Donald Brown said, "There are indications of more attempts that we are investigating at this time."
Police told WBTV that Bodie had just moved to North Carolina a few months ago from Stone Mountain, Georgia.
Newton Police have contacted police in Georgia to see if they are working any similar cases from Bodie's time there.
They have also reached out to other local law enforcement agencies to see if any other incidents have been reported to other departments.
