RIVERTON, Wyo. — Police have arrested a 22-year-old man accused of abducting a 9-year-old girl from her Riverton home.

David Waine Brock was arrested in Lander on Tuesday on kidnapping charges. He is accused of taking the girl from her bedroom at about 3:40 a.m. Saturday.

Investigators say the girl's parents went to her room after they heard a scream and found the screen on her window had been cut and the girl missing. The girl was found walking along a nearby street about 40 minutes later.

Police say a bloodhound tracked her scent to Brock's home, but the man was not there when officers arrived. He was found hiding in a storage shed in Lander.
