MERRIAM, Kan. (AP) - A 24-year-old Olathe man is charged with trying to kidnap a woman from an eastern Kansas business.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1LhtVIO ) reports Johnson County prosecutors have charged Brandon Lee McReynolds with a felony count of attempted kidnapping. He appeared in court Thursday and requested a public defender.

McReynolds was arrested Tuesday after police released surveillance camera images to the public from the Monday incident at a Merriam business.

Merriam police say the woman was working when McReynolds came in to inquire about a job. They say McReynolds then demanded several times she leave with him.

Authorities say McReynolds fled after hearing approaching footsteps, and that the woman wasn’t physically injured.
