A monk from Wisconsin has been charged with attempted child abduction and disorderly conduct.

Thomas Chmura is being held in Lake County jail in Illinois after police arrested him Friday after he allegedly tried to lure a 14-year-old Antioch girl into his car Thursday night.

The girl ran home.

Chmura has been living at Saint Benedict's Abbey in Benet Lake for the past 32 years.
