BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) – A man accused of trying to kidnap an Aurora girl appeared in court Friday to be advised of the charges against him.
John Snorsky waived the reading of the charges against him during the hearing in Brighton.
The 26-year-old parolee was charged with kidnapping, burglary and other crimes earlier this week.
Snorsky is accused of taking the 8-year-old girl from her bedroom on Oct. 28 but police say he didn’t get far. They say the girl screamed and got away by pinching him and running away.
Snorsky had been on parole for a burglary conviction. He was arrested the day after the attempted abduction on an unrelated charge and later linked to the kidnapping case while in jail.
No lawyer has been appointed to represent him yet.
