PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A man suspected of trying to abduct an 11-year-old girl in Providence earlier this year is facing a new charge.
The statewide grand jury handed up an indictment Monday charging Glenn Chamberland with one count of attempted kidnapping of a minor, the Rhode Island Attorney General’s Office said Thursday.
Chamberland, 50, was arrested following the April 27 incident on Admiral Street.
According to police, the girl and her mother reported that a man had grabbed the girl by the arm and attempted to pull her out of their backyard after the mother went into the house around 7:45 p.m.
The girl managed to break loose and run inside, police said, and her mother took down the suspect’s license plate as he drove off.
The plate was connected to a Cranston address where a woman told police the vehicle was in possession of her son. Chamberland was located and arrested a short time later, according to police.
The AG’s office said Chamberland is scheduled to be arraigned in Providence County Superior Court on Oct. 13.
