Springfield Man Accused Of Attempted Child Abduction

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.
