Authorities said on Monday that an arrest was made after an attempted kidnapping of a 6-year-old boy in Monrovia.

Authorities said an arrest was made on Sunday night, but no further details were released.

Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said the boy was playing outside his house on Graydon Avenue about 4 p.m. Friday when the suspect grabbed him and ran off. The boy managed to escape by biting the suspect and immediately ran home.

"He put his hand over my mouth and picked me up with his hand over my stomach," the boy said. "I was kicking and I bit him and he fell down and he dropped me, so I ran home."
