Gulfport Police say they have evidence linking Terry Slater to a second kidnapping attempt.  So, the 53-year-old has been charged with one additional count of kidnapping, attempted sexual battery, and molestation.

Slater was arrested Sunday after allegedly abducting a 10-year-old, and taking her to his home.  Police said that child broke away from the suspect, and ran out of the home screaming.

Now, a second, similar incident has been reported to Gulfport Police.  Consequently, officers gathered enough information to arrest Slater on a second kidnapping charge.
