The Stafford County sheriff’s Office announced in a social post the arrest of an abduction suspect.

The arrest of 34 year old Steven Randall Williams of Stafford occurred after being suspected of the attempted abduction of  a 9 year old girl.

The girl was walking home from school when Williams reportedly approached her asking for directions when he forced her into his car.

When Williams went around the vehicle the girl unlocked the door and managed to escape.

Authorities tried repeatedly with various methods to get Williams to come out to no avail.
