A man who allegedly tried to kidnap a 9-year-old girl from Harker Heights on her way home from school on September 28 told her he was adopting her and offered the child money, according to the police records.
On September 29, the child told a forensic investigator from the Children’s Advocacy Center of Central Texas that a man “stopped and told her she wasn’t supposed to walk home and ride in his vehicle and that he would take her home,” according to the probable cause affidavit for the arrest of Marco A. Gonzalez. “(She) said she didn’t know the man, but she got into the vehicle. She said the man didn’t ask her for her address and drove in the direction of the school and drove past in front of the school to a road she did not know.
