May 17, 2014

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A man accused of trying to abduct children in Omaha was arrested after leading police on a chase from Nebraska to Iowa and back.

KETV reports that 23-year-old Sean Collins was arrested Thursday in Omaha's Old Market district. Police say Collins fled from officers after they were called to a report of a motorist who was trying to lure two children, ages 6 and 10, into a van.

Officers say that when they found the van, the driver turned the lights off and a woman appeared to flee from an open door. The driver sped off, crossing into Council Bluffs and then back into Omaha on Interstate 480 before crashing into two vehicles.

Collins is charged with attempted abduction, attempted robbery, flight to avoid arrest and theft by receiving.
