Three Arrested After Attempted Kidnapping

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - A near kidnapping attempt in Lewis and Clark County was thwarted and three men are currently in custody as a result.
According to law enforcement, three men tried to abduct a woman who was competing in the Dynamite Dash yesterday in Lincoln.

Three men from Lincoln, Cecil Hale, Robert Wilson, and Stanley Wright were arrested yesterday night and face attempted kidnapping charges.
According to Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton, the victim reported the kidnapping attempt was while she was on the course, and that they approached her in a green van.

She escaped the attempt by going off the course and notifying authorities. Two residents spotted the van several hours later and recognized two of the men in the van. The witnesses also knew where the alleged kidnappers lived.

Police went to the residence and arrested the three and found Hale reportedly hiding behind a shed. Sheriff Dutton says that alcohol may have been a factor in the event.
