BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say a 13-year-old girl Billings-area girl kicked a man who tried to kidnap her in her home and then chased him with a pocket knife when he fled.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://tinyurl.com/pql9lh5 ) the incident occurred early Wednesday in Lockwood, adjacent to northeastern Billings.

The girl told investigators the man had handcuffs and told her to be quiet and put her hands behind her back.

She said the man fled when she kicked him, and she ran after him with the knife. Her mother called 911.

A suspect was arrested after police distributed a sketch using the girl’s description.

Thirty-six-year-old Lester Harley McFerran appeared in Yellowstone County court Monday on burglary and attempted kidnapping charges. Bail was set at $200,000.

Online records didn’t indicate whether he had an attorney.
