CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Caught on Tape: A man was getting lewd on a city bus and police say he even tried to kidnap a young girl.

Michael McCord was busted after a man saw him and recognized him from a show on 19 Action News.

Cops say McCord repeatedly tried to pick up a young teen girl who rode the bus to school.

"He boldly asked her to go home with him and have sex. She replied I'm just a kid I'm only 13 years old. His response is I don't care. You look good in those jeans."

Police say the creep even exposed himself on the bus.

Cops needed to find him so Crime Stoppers featured him on the Warrant Unit, a program spotlighting unsolved mysteries on channel 19 and 43 every weekend.

A tipster spotted Mr. McCord on public square and called police.
