WI monk charged in attempted abduction


WAUKEGAN, IL (WKOW) -- A Wisconsin monk has been charged with trying to abduct an Illinois teenager.

During an arraignment Thursday, the judge increased Thomas Chmura's bond from $50,000 to $150,000. The Benedictine monk from Benet Lake is accused of trying to kidnap a 14-year-old girl in Antioch.

The girl told police she was approached by a man in a station wagon and asked if she needed a ride. Chmura was arrested Friday based on the girl's description.
