NC man picked up for trying to entice girl into vehicle with candy, according to police

Posted: Updated:
NEWTON, NC -

Police arrested a Newton man after he reportedly tried to kidnap an 11-year-old girl by offering her candy. The girl was walking along S. College Avenue around 6:20 Wednesday night when a man driving a white Chevrolet Impala came up to her. He reportedly offered her candy and wanted her to get in his vehicle.

The girl ran to a nearby business to get help and the guy took off.

Police sent out a description of the vehicle and 21-year-old Malcolm Devonte Bodie was picked up by police. 

Police say they found a Blow Pop in Bodie's pocket, and then several packages of chewing gum and suckers were found in Bodie's car.

He's charged with attempted second degree kidnapping.

Newton Police Chief Donald Brown said, "There are indications of more attempts that we are investigating at this time."

Apparently Bodie recently moved to North Carolina from Stone Mountain, Georgia and police have contacted law enforcement there to if they're working any similar cases from Bodie's time there.
