Serial abductor broke into Ohio homes to kidnap girls, police say

CLEVELAND, OH (AP) – A Cleveland-area man accused of breaking into two homes and kidnapping a girl and trying to abduct another has been indicted on rape and other charges.

Investigators say they found DNA to link the 29-year-old man to both cases.

They’re calling him a serial abductor and are looking into whether he was involved in similar abduction attempts.

A grand jury on Monday indicted Justin Christian, of Lorain, on rape, kidnapping and aggravated burglary charges. Police arrested him Friday.

Prosecutors say Christian is suspected of kidnapping a 6-year-old Cleveland girl in May and attempting to abduct a 10-year-old Elyria girl in February.

There were no court records indicating whether Christian has an attorney. There is no home telephone listing for him. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
