BATH — A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to just over five years in prison for trying to kidnap a 2-year-old boy at a Maine park-and-ride lot.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports that 30-year-old James Graham of Newmarket, N.H., was convicted in Bath Superior Court of attempted kidnapping and assault and sentenced to five years and three months in prison.

He was accused of grabbing the child by the arm and trying to take him away from his grandmother and mother in Bowdoinham in May. Police at the time said they seized a loaded handgun, knives, parachute cord, cable ties and maps of the White Mountains from Graham’s vehicle.
