Man arrested in attempted abduction at elementary school near Derby

A scary situation on a Kansas playground ends with a man behind bars on suspicion of kidnapping.

It happened outside Wineteer Elementary School near Derby Tuesday afternoon. An official with Derby Schools said this was an unwanted adult making a random attempt to grab students. Some students reported he grabbed their shirts or their arms but, thankfully, no one was harmed.

The suspect, Tyler Debarea, left the school in a stolen truck but was arrested shortly after crashing into a gate at McConnell Air Force Base. It was the end of a frightening ordeal that had some parents on edge.
