A 51-year-old transient woman was charged in 3rd District Court on Thursday in an alleged kidnapping attempt on two girls at the Salt Lake City Main Library last week.
Terryette Woods faces two charges of child kidnapping; both are first-degree felonies.
Woods pulled an 8-year-old and a 5-year-old girl by the wrists at the library on the afternoon of June 18 and said, "You're coming with me," charging documents state. The older girl told the suspect she didn't want to go and was about to scream for help. But Woods let go of the girls and ran away when she saw a security guard, police said.
Woods was spotted on the morning of June 20 at the TRAX station on 400 South, police said - the same spot where a library security guard saw her after the alleged kidnapping attempt.
Woods was booked into the Salt Lake County jail last week.
