Pa. man charged with abducting 8-year-old girl
READING, Pa. (AP) -- An eastern Pennsylvania man is facing charges in the abduction of an 8-year-old girl while she was walking to school last week.
Police in Reading said 25-year-old Fabricio Alvarado was arrested Friday and charged with kidnapping, unlawful restraint, indecent assault and related counts.
The girl was walking to her elementary school on Tuesday when she was abducted.
Authorities allege that Alvarado forced the child into his car and drove to his home in nearby Muhlenberg Township.
The girl was dropped off about an hour later back in Reading. She was able to find her way to find her way home and report the abduction.
Police said Alvarado has no prior connection to the girl or her family. No other details have been released.
