Jay Miller, 50, was arrested Wednesday, charged with the attempted abduction of four girls at Weis Park in Canton.
According to the report from Canton Police, at about 5:41 p.m. Wednesday, Miller is alleged to have approached the group of children between the ages of 6 and 11-years-old and threatened to duct tape their mouths, hit them over the heads with a hammer, and drag them to his car.
Miller reportedly then drove off, but a witness got a picture of his license plate. He was arrested at a home on 32nd Street shortly after the incident late yesterday afternoon.
Miller's first court appearance is scheduled for Friday morning at 9 a.m.
