Iberia Parish sheriff’s deputies Sunday arrested a Jeanerette man accused of trying to abduct an 8-year-old child.

Detectives believe Montana Doice, 33, tried to kidnap the child shortly after 8 p.m. in the 600 block of Bayard Street, Sheriff Louis Ackal said in a news release.

The arrest came after authorities received multiple tips from witnesses, who said Doice was driving a white older model Ford pickup with a silver toolbox and ladder rack.

Doice was booked into the Iberia Parish Jail on counts of attempted simple kidnapping.
