    WICHITA FALLS ( KFDX/KJTL ) — A 60-year-old man who allegedly tried to lure a boy into his truck on Brook in April and later tried to run over people near Faith Mission has been indicted.

    Albert Edmonds has been indicted for criminal solicitation of a minor and indecency with a child by sexual contact for the Brook incident. Four counts of aggravated assault from the Faith Mission incident are pending.

    The incident on Brook happened just before Edmonds was arrested after people said he tried to hit them with his truck on the sidewalk in front of Faith Mission on the evening of April 15, 2024.

    Witnesses reported hearing screaming and seeing a black male in a green pickup grab a young teenage boy and try to kiss him. Some of the witnesses took down the license number and took photos of the truck.

    Police reject suspect’s “she fell off the truck” story

    Shortly after this, there was a report of a green pickup trying to run over people at Faith Mission at 1300 Travis.

    One victim told officers the man got mad after asking for cigarettes, and he drove onto the sidewalk toward him and others, all of whom were able to jump out of the way.

    Police reviewed surveillance video of the incident and matched the driver as the same suspect involved in the Brook incident.

    The truck was later found on MLK Boulevard, and Edmonds was arrested.

    A bond hearing for Edmonds has been set for July 1, and prosecutors filed for additional conditions for release on bond on Monday, June 10, including prohibiting Edmonds from any contact with minors or going to any places where children gather.
