Seven Springs Man Charged With Child Abduction

A man is in jail under a $500,000 bond and is facing child abduction charges.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says 40-year-old Oscar Juarez-Perez was arrested and charged with one count of felonious restraint and one count of child abduction.

Deputies say a concerned citizen called authorities when Juarez-Perez was spotted with a four-year-old child at his home on Jimmy's Drive in Seven Springs. The person told authorities they've never seen the child with the 40-year-old before.

After several interviews, deputies were able to track down the child's mother and Juarez-Perez was taken into custody.

No other information on the case has been released as the investigation is ongoing.
