ND men accused of trying to take girl to marry son

AP | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

Two men are accused of trying to pick up a 14-year-old girl from her Kentucky school and take her to North Dakota to marry the 14-year-old son of one of the men.

Bowling Green, Ky., police spokesman Barry Pruitt says the teens had been communicating over the Internet and decided they wanted to get married. Pruitt says the boy, his father and another man drove 15 hours to Kentucky. School officials called police when they tried to check the girl out of class on Monday.

Pruitt said the girl was not old enough to legally consent.

The men, 42-year-old Dragan Jovanovic and 18-year-old Elvis Tahirovic, were arraigned Tuesday on one charge each of attempted kidnapping. Their attorney did not immediately return a message seeking comment Wednesday.
