A man was arrested after allegedly attempting to abduct a 2-year-old girl at the Maine State Museum in Augusta on Tuesday morning. 

James Cavallaro, 58 of Bath, faces charges for assault and violating conditions of release.

The girl was at the Museum with her grandmother, who had turned her back to hang up coats when the incident occurred. A museum receptionist saw what was happening and intervened, and the girl was released.

Capitol Police found Cavallaro in the parking lot of the Museum and took him into custody without resistance. He was out on bail on an unrelated charge from Sagadahoc County.
