A Springfield man has been arrested after authorities say he attempted to lure minors into his vehicle on two separate occasions this week.
30-year-old Anthony Sims is facing Child Abduction charges for two separate incidents this week. In one, he is accused of trying to coax a 14-year-old girl into the minivan he was driving in the 2200 block of East Cedar. Authorities say he left after the girl pulled out a phone and called police.
Sims is also accused of trying to lure another juvenile into the vehicle in the 1400 block of East Kansas. That child ran to a nearby church and reported the incident.
Police are asking anyone with information about these or similar incidents to call Crimestoppers.
