VB man pleads not guilty to reduced charge

A man arrested for the kidnapping of a Van Buren child pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Crawford County Circuit Court to a reduced charge of interference with custody.

Kenyon Devoan Warren, 30, of Van Buren is the noncustodial father of an 8-week-old child who was reportedly taken from the 400 block of Franklin Street about 5:25 p.m. Oct. 13.

The public defender’s office entered the not guilty plea for Warren, who is free on $3,500 bond, and waived formal arraignment before Judge Gary R. Cottrell.

The child’s mother 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 near Conway. The child was not harmed.
