JASPER, AL (WBRC) - Jasper police have arrested a man accused of trying to kidnap a woman from Gamble Park.

22-year-old Bernardo Castro-Gabriel - also known as Omar Sanchez - is charged with second-degree kidnapping and enticing a child.

Police say Gabriel is an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala. Authorities also say the suspect attempted to lure two teenagers into vehicle before the attempted kidnapping.

Gabriel is being held in the Walker County Jail on a $1 million cash bond. We're told ICE agents are ready to deport him after he answers for his crimes.
