A judge set bail at $100,000 for a man accused of attempting to kidnap a 13-year-old girl near Leavitt Middle School earlier this week.

Jorge Gomez-Peretz, 37, appeared in Las Vegas Justice Court Wednesday morning. He is facing a charge of 1st Degree Kidnapping of a Minor. His bail was originally set at $10,000.

It was learned in court the victim was 13, not 14-years-old, and according to the prosecutor, she was violently pulled into his vehicle before escaping on Monday.

The judge said if Gomez-Peretz is able to make bail he is not allowed to have any contact with children except relatives. There was no evidence of any prior criminal history.

He is due back in court on Oct. 9, 2018.
