COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A 22-year-old Council Bluffs man has been given 10 years in prison for trying to kidnap a girl near her elementary school.

Omaha, Nebraska, television station KMTV reports (https://bit.ly/1rJus3C ) that Nathan Busse pleaded guilty Thursday to child stealing after prosecutors dropped a kidnapping charge.

Council Bluffs police say Busse grabbed the girl in January 2013 near Edison Elementary School and forced her to walk with him. She struggled with Busse and broke away.

After mental testing in 2014, Busse was found incompetent for trial. This past March he was found competent for trial. At sentencing he was given credit for the time served while being treated in a state institution.
