Kidnapping charges have been refiled against a 36-year-old Tacoma man accused of trying to snatch a 3-year-old last year.
A second-degree kidnapping charge was dismissed against Tyrone Greene in October after he was found incompetent to stand trial. He was civilly committed to Western State Hospital.
He is about to be discharged, and Pierce County prosecutors have noted he is “a high risk for dangerous behavior and re-offending,” according to court papers. A competency hearing has been set for next month.
Greene allegedly tried to kidnap a child walking with a friend of the mother on April 12, 2012. He grabbed the child and tussled with the woman until witnesses tackled him to the ground and held him until police arrived, according to firstname.lastname@example.org
