A Westbrook man accused of trying to lure a young girl from a bus stop has been indicted on a charge of attempted kidnapping.

A Cumberland County grand jury today also indicted 53-year-old Steven J. Morrill on charges of criminal restraint and assault.

Westbrook police say Morrill approached a 5-year-old girl in February as she waited for a school bus in the Brown Street area. Police say he started to walk away with her before a witness intervened.

Morrill’s criminal history includes convictions for sexual abuse of a minor in 1993, furnishing liquor to a minor in 1986 and arson in 2004.
