WATERTOWN (AP) - An employee of a Menards store in Watertown has been arrested for trying to abduct a young child.

Police say the attempted abduction of the 4-year-old child happened at the store Sunday afternoon. Assistant Police Chief Tim Toomey says the 35-year-old Canby, Minnesota man grabbed the child and quickly walked away from the boy's family. KSFY-TV reports the child's father pursued the man to an employee break area where the employee released the boy.

Police were called and the employee was arrested on a possible charge of second-degree kidnapping. He's currently being held on $20,000 cash bond.
