A Scott man remains in jail after deputies say he attempted to kidnap a 12-year-old boy.

The alleged incident occurred near the 100 block of Pennington Drive in Lafayette Parish. The boy had just gotten off of the school bus and was walking home when, he says 41-year-old Jonathan Rogers pulled up alongside of him and told him to get into the vehicle.

The boy ran home and told his mother of the incident. The mother then called authorities. When deputies questioned Rogers he confirmed that he neither knew the child nor knew where he lived.  Rogers was arrested and charged with attempted simple kidnapping. His bond has been set at $75,000.
