Perry County Police arrest man for attempting to kidnap a minor

A man was arrested in Perry County, Tuesday morning, after police say he tried to kidnap a girl at a gas station.

The man, Keith Reavis, let her go when the girl began screaming for help. Police said the victim flagged down a Perry County Sheriff’s Deputy, and after the girl gave them a description of the man and his vehicle, officers found the vehicle in a Walmart parking lot. When Reavis came back to his car, officers detained him.

He was arrested based on the victim and witnesses statements, as well as video surveillance footage.

Reavis, of Hyden, was taken to the Kentucky River Regional Jail on charges of attempted kidnapping of a minor.
