ANTIOCH, IL (WTAQ) - Illinois authorities report they are holding a 57-year-old Benedictine monk from Wisconsin on charges of attempted child abduction.

Thomas Chmura was arrested last week.

Police say a 14-year-old girl was walking along a road in Antioch, Illinois, when a man in a station wagon stopped and asked if she needed a ride. The girl ran away and the suspect drove off.

The teen gave police a description of the man and his car and Chmura was arrested. He had reportedly been living at St. Benedict’s Abbey in Benet Lake, Wisconsin, for more than 30 years.
