Wayne Co. man accused of trying to kidnap 8-year-old girl

RITTMAN, OH (WOIO) -

A Wayne County man is out on bond after being charged with a misdemeanor count of child enticement.

Police said Shannon Rowe, 45, tried to kidnap an 8-year-old girl last week.

According to the Wayne County Sheriff's Department, the girl was playing in front of a church on Portage St. near her home when Rowe approached her and said, "come with me little girl."

The girl's 13-year-old brother was across the street and told Rowe to leave her alone. Rowe was arrested down the street at his mother's home.

Rowe is a part-time employee in the engineering department at WOIO. He will be in Wayne County Municipal Court on Nov. 10.
