AURORA - An arrest has been made in the attempted kidnapping of an 8-year-old girl in Aurora early Monday morning.
According to Aurora Police, John Stanley Snorsky, 26, has been charged with first and second-degree burglary and second degree kidnapping.
Snorsky, from Aurora, has been in jail since Tuesday morning after being arrested by Aurora Police for an "investigative parole hold on an unrelated case," says a press release from police.
The attempted abduction occurred around 12:15 a.m. Monday at a home in the 1600 block of Hanover Street. Police believe the suspect broke through a window screen and tried to take the girl. She screamed, which alerted her father. When her father ran outside he found his daughter in the alley.

Chief of Police Dan Oates will hold a press conference on Saturday.
Snorsky is being held on $500,000 bond.
