A Churchton man has been charged with kidnapping and sexual assault for allegedly abducting a 12-year-old girl Saturday afternoon in Annapolis. 

The girl told Annapolis police she was walking in the area of Skippers Lane and South Cherry Grove Avenue when a man pulled her into his vehicle, drove her to a nearby street, and attempted to assault her. The girl was able to get out of the vehicle and run away; she was not injured.
 
The girl guided officers to the 1100 block of Belle Drive, where the suspect’s vehicle was parked when she jumped out. The vehicle was still parked there, but was unoccupied. 

Annapolis detectives identified the registered owner of the vehicle, Cordell Salisbury, 52, of Churchton, as the suspect in the abduction. The girl does not know Salisbury and he is not a registered sex offender.
 
Detectives arrested Salisbury in a home in the 100 block of Brightwater Drive early Sunday morning. He was charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, second-degree assault, fourth-degree sex offense, attempted third-degree sex offense, sexual solicitation of a minor, indecent exposure, and kidnapping a child under 16.

Salisbury is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on a temporary commitment pending his hearing with the District Court Commissioner.
 
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Charles Bealefeld at 410-268-9000 ext. 7299 or cebealefeld@annapolis.gov.
