A homeless teen made a court appearance Tuesday morning in connection with the attempted kidnapping of a 7-year-old boy.

18-year-old Devin Turner was arraigned on charges of attempted unlawful imprisonment.

Monroe County Sheriff's deputies said that the incident happened Saturday afternoon in a wooded lot in Monroe Township. Detectives said the kidnapping was prevented, when a 14-year-old boy saw the suspect trying to drag the victim into the woods.

The teen raced to help the younger boy, pushed the suspect and fled with the victim along with a group of other boys.

The judge set a bond at $100,000. He is currently being held in the Monroe County Jail.

Turner is scheduled for another hearing on Monday, June 30 at 10 a.m. in Monroe First District Court.
