HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police arrested a man accused of trying to kidnap a 13-year-old girl in Salt Lake on Wednesday.

Police said it happened around 7 a.m. at Salt Lake Shopping Center.

The suspect, 32-year-old Richard Flores, allegedly restrained the girl, but she was able to break free and walk to school. That's when she reported the incident.

Flores was arrested two hours later.

He was released pending further investigation because the girl’s parents did not want to pursue charges, police said.
