She was transported to Unity Point Medical Center for treatment. The youth matching the description given by the victim and other witnesses at the scene was identified and apprehended nearby. Information obtained during the investigation has led officers to believe the incident was related to an abduction attempt on the Snell Crawford Trail last August. The juvenile has been charged with Attempted Murder and Going Armed with Intent in relation to Saturday's incident. The juvenile has also been charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon in relation to the incident last August 4 at Snell Crawford Trail.
