CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A Colerain Township man answered to charges that he tried to lure children into his vehicle. Steven Hartel faces five counts of criminal child enticement.

Assistant prosecutor David Wood asked the judge to set a high bond for Hartel. He said on two separate occasions on January 11, Hartel asked kids to get into his car as they walked to school. The kids were all under 14-years-old.

Wood said Hartel admitted the allegations were true to police.

A judge ordered him held on $125,000 bond.
