JENISON, MI (WHTC) - Kidnapping and assault charges are pending against an unnamed 11-year-old Jenison boy who allegedly kidnapped a six-year-old boy on Wednesday afternoon. Authorities say that the suspect lured the victim out of the front yard at a home in the area of 12th Avenue and Chicago Drive, took him across the adjacent railroad tracks, and onto M-121 during the afternoon commute. The victim’s stepmother tracked the boys down and scuffled with the suspect on Chicago Drive in an attempt to retrieve her child before calling 911. The victim and stepmother were not seriously hurt; the suspect remains in the Ottawa County Juvenile Detention Center pending a court hearing.
