Sigourney man arrested, charged with enticing minor

ELDON — A Sigourney man has been arrested and charged with enticing a minor.

Matthew R. Reynolds, 26, was arrested Wednesday and charged with enticing away a minor, an aggravated misdemeanor. The incident for which Reynolds was arrested allegedly occurred on the afternoon of Oct. 9 in Eldon when a female minor reported that a vehicle had been following her.

The driver stopped and encouraged her to get in the vehicle. The minor screamed and ran from the area. During the investigation, law enforcement obtained information to support the minor’s statement.

Reynolds was arrested and subsequently released after posting a $2,000 bond.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation assisted the Wapello County Sheriff’s Office in this matter.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
