EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. - A  31-year-old Fort Carson soldier has been arrested, accused of child enticement and kidnapping that spanned two years and several towns in Colorado.

On June 19, El Paso County Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a bald white man who had abducted a child on Forest Road in Stratmoor Valley. The victim was a 9-year-old girl who had been physically forced into a vehicle. The girl was dropped off in a nearby neighborhood a short time after the abduction.

On Oct. 16 deputies responded to a call of a similar suspect enticing a 7-year-old girl in the Stratmoor Hills area. The girl was walking home from school when a man grabbed her by the hand. The girl was able to pull away from the man and then ran home.

Lucas has been taken into custody and is currently at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center on a $2 million bond for the charges of enticement of a child and kidnapping. He is also on a $50,000 bond for the charge of enticement of a child.
