ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities arrested a man after he allegedly tried to abduct a 6-year-old girl from a Southern California park.

The Los Angeles Times reports the girl was playing in a picnic area in Arcadia on Sunday when a man, described as a transient, dragged her about 100 feet.

Sheriff's officials say the girl screamed and yelled and fought the man off.

The girl ran to her mother, who called police.

Thirty-three-year-old Jason Dell was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and held in lieu of $400,000 bail. He is expected to be arraigned Tuesday.
