abduction

A judge has set bail at $2 million cash for a Montana man suspected of abducting and assaulting an 11-year-old Wyoming girl.
 
Thirty-nine-year-old Jesse Paul Speer made his initial court appearance today/Friday before Circuit Court Judge Bruce Waters in Cody. His preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 26.
 
Prosecutors allege Speer forced a Cody girl into his SUV at gunpoint on Oct. 8, then assaulted and abandoned her outside of town. Hunters eventually found the girl.
 
He was arrested Saturday in Montana.
 

Police say an 11-year-old girl from Cody who was the subject of an Amber Alert was sexually assaulted. 

Cody Police Chief Perry Rockvam says the girl was coerced into a van at the Park County Complex at about 4:30 Monday afternoon.  The girl was later found walking down a nearby mountain road by a group of hunters. 

Authorities say that the man who abducted the girl sexually assaulted her.   Rockvam says they are still looking for the suspect.
