Grand Island, Neb. (KSNB) - A Grand Island man is headed to trial court on multiple charges involving kidnapping and possession of child pornography.

Luis Carrillo Argueta, 22, was arrested back in May for attempted kidnapping of a 13-year-old boy.

Court records show that Carrillo Argueta tried to pull a 13-year-old boy into his car on May 12. The boy escaped unharmed. The incident happened near 12th and Elm Street in Grand Island as the boy was walking home from Walnut Middle School.

On Tuesday, a judge found probable cause to transfer the kidnapping case to Hall County District Court for possible trial.

When police arrested Argueta they got a warrant to search his electronics. They discovered five videos of sex acts being performed on minors on a device in Argueta’s bedroom. Police said the pornography was not related to the victim of the kidnapping crime.

On Tuesday Argueta waived a probable cause hearing and the case was transferred to Hall County District Court for possible trial.

The videos were not related to the victim of the attempted kidnapping case
