CEDAR FALLS (AP) - Police say they have arrested a man accused of attempting to lure a teenage girl into a Cedar Falls apartment.

Online court records show 35-year-old Roy Alfred Halverson, of Cedar Falls, was arrested Thursday on charges of attempt to entice a minor and drug violations.

According to court documents, Halverson was outside a Cedar Falls apartment complex around 2 a.m. Thursday and a teenage girl was making a phone call nearby. He asked to use her phone, grabbed her wrist and began leading her away.

Instead, she broke away and joined her friends, and Halverson followed them.

Halverson is currently a registered sex offender in Iowa, according to the Iowa Sex Offender Registry. He was convicted of lascivious acts with a child under age 14 as well as assault with intent to commit sexual abuse on an adult in 2004.

Court records show he hasn't been assigned an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
