HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The man who allegedly tried to entice a 10-year-old girl into his vehicle Monday is now being held on a $500,000 bond.

Dennis Watson Sr., 60,  made his initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon in front of Judge George Schmidt who set the bond.

Watson was arrested Monday evening after police say he tried to lure a girl into his red van at a convenience store on Katie Ave.

Waston told the court he had one previous felony conviction stemming from a 1976 charge of possession of marijuana.
