ONAWA, Iowa (AP) - An Ankeny man accused of trying to lure a 6-year-old girl into his car faces several charges.

Police tell the Des Moines Register (https://dmreg.co/2fpzSv2 ) that 56-year-old Jeff Lee Altmayer approached the girl Wednesday on an Onawa street and offered her $100 to get in his car. Police say another child screamed, and neighbors confronted Altmayer. Police say Altmayer told them he was a police officer and armed before driving off.

Troopers soon stopped Altmayer south of Onawa, and he was arrested.

He’s been charged with enticing a minor with intent to commit sexual abuse or sexual exploitation, impersonating a public official and unlawful possession of a prescription drug.

Altmayer remained jailed Saturday on $50,000 bond. An attorney for Altmayer did not immediately return a message left Saturday seeking comment.
