LOUISVILLE, K.Y. -- (WAVE) -- A Louisville man faces kidnapping and other charges after allegedly trying to pull a 10-year-old girl out of a car window in downtown Louisville Sunday night.

According to a police report, Tyler Mitchell Atkins, 37, was running throughout the 400 block of East Market Street, disrupting traffic and causing drivers to swerve to avoid hitting him.
