A Madison County man is in jail without bond after police say he tried to abduct a four year old at a playground.

London Police say Robert Fiege allegedly grabbed a four year girl by the wrist as she was playing nearby on Sheffield Blvd.

"Shocked. I mean London is quiet town. You don't hear much of anything going on," says neighbor Joe Wiremen.

Authorities say other children who were the victim's cousin heard her screams and ran over to help.

Investigators say the child was pulled away and ran to her family for help.

Fiege was taken to London Police headquarters where investigators say the Madison County Prosecutor decided to charge him with abduction.

The child's mother spoke with 10TV's Jason Frazer off camera and says her daughter was visibly scared after police showed a picture of the suspect to the child.
Fiege is now in the Tri-County Jail.

London Police tell 10TV it's unclear why he allegedly grabbed the girl.
