Davenport police say they’ve caught a suspect who they believe was trying to snatch girls. In recent weeks, officers say a man has been trying to lure young teenage girls into his car at a city park and other locations.
As a result cops developed a possible suspect and vehicle. Another incident was reported Friday and witnesses provided some key information, including a license plate number. Police saw the car in question minutes later and stopped it.
They say under questioning, 61-year-old Jerry Maxwell of Davenport admitted guilt. He’s charged with two counts of enticing a minor. That’s a felony.
