Plea entered for kidnapping suspect

The Crawford County Public Defender’s Office has been appointed to represent a man accused of kidnapping a Van Buren child.

Kenyon Warren, 29, appeared in Crawford County Circuit Court Wednesday on suspicion of kidnapping.

Judge Gary R. Cottrell ruled there was enough evidence to hold Warren, who was arrested Oct. 13 near Conway and transported to the Crawford County Detention Center.

Warren is the noncustodial father of an 8-week-old child who was reportedly kidnapped from the 400 block of Franklin Street about 5:25 p.m. Oct. 13.

Cottrell set Warren’s bond at $3,500 after Public Defender Dan Stewart said Warren lives in Van Buren and is a graduate of Van Buren High School.

“Evidence also will show that the mother abandoned the child,” Stewart said.

Cottrell ordered Warren to have no contact with the child’s mother, Summer Flurry, or her children if he is released on bond.

Flurry told police Warren took the child after the two had gotten into an argument. Van Buren police sent an alert to surrounding law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for Warren’s black Ford F-150 pickup.

Warren was located and arrested by a Little Rock agency. The child was not harmed.
