Teenager accused of trying to kidnap girl, 4, from her bedroom in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado Springs Police Department says a 16-year-old boy tried to break into a little girl's bedroom and take her.

Officers were called to an apartment in the 1500 block of Gatehouse Circle South at around 1 a.m. Tuesday to investigate a possible prowler. They say the teen tried to break in through a bedroom window.  

The housing complex where this happened is located just to the east of the King Soopers on W. Uintah Street.

The child’s mom got to her before the teen could make physical contact, police said. 

The teenager is now facing charges of attempted second-degree kidnapping, first-degree criminal trespass, and criminal mischief.

The teen's name and picture have not been released because he is a minor.
