DAVENPORT, Wash. (AP) - The 15-year-old boy arrested in connection with an attempted kidnapping of a young child in a small eastern Washington community is scheduled to appear in court Friday afternoon.
    
The boy, whose name has not been released, was booked into a juvenile detention facility this week on suspicion of second-degree kidnapping. He was arrested after authorities say he tried to take a 22-month-old toddler from a city park in Sprague on Sunday - an incident that drew wide attention after it was caught on surveillance video.
    
Sprague is a farm town of about 500 people located about 40 miles west of Spokane.
