A Chillum man was arrested after Prince George's County police say he abducted two girls and sexually assaulted them.

Police said Charles Amofa, 25, lured a 6-year-old girl from the Value Village Thrift Store, 2777 University Blvd. in Adelphi, at around 1:30 p.m. Monday, and took her to a nearby playground in the area of Chapman Road, police said.

The man promised her a toy and took the girl while her father was not watching, police said.

Officer Fredys Castro-Rivas spotted the man and the girl and rushed to her rescue, police said.

Police said Amofa admitted to a similar incident involving an 8-year-old girl on July 9.

He was charged with first-degree sex offense and child abduction.
