WEST UNION, Iowa (AP) - A northeast Iowa teen has been charged with kidnapping a girl and sexually abusing her.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that the 16-year-old from West Union was arrested for first-degree kidnapping and third-degree sexual abuse. He has been charged as an adult.

The Associated Press generally doesn’t name minors accused of crimes.

According to court records, the teen picked up a 15-year-old girl and wouldn’t let her leave his vehicle. Records say he parked the car and initiated sexual contact with the girl. Police found the two inside unclothed.

Police say the teenagers knew each other.

If convicted, the teen, who was arrested Feb. 13, faces up to 10 years in prison on the sexual abuse charge and life in prison on the kidnapping charge.
