XENIA, Ohio (WKRC) - Recently-released surveillance footage from an Ohio jail reportedly shows the moment a suspect attacked an officer.
Reid Duran, 35, was taken custody after he attended an open house at a K-8 Catholic school Monday.
Witnesses say he lied about being the parent of a kindergarten student, and suspicious staff members called police.
Officers say Duran told them later that he was there attempting to kidnap a five-year-old girl.
According to a statement from police, he admitted that he planned to give his victim candy laced with tranquilizers, but no drugs were found on his person.
Duran agreed to be taken in for questioning.
In jail surveillance footage, he can be seen sitting at a table without handcuffs, since he came voluntarily.
He then allegedly picks up a pen from the desk and lunges at the officer in the room, Nicholas Peters.
The video then apparently shows Peters blocking the stabbing attempt, and throwing Duran to the ground before radioing for backup.
"Put your hands behind your back now," Peters says. "Are you f---ing kidding me right now? Put your hands behind your f---ing back right now!"
Officers were eventually able to restrain Duran.
He is charged with attempted kidnapping, felonious assault, and escape.
Duran's mom and brother told NBC News that he has suffers from schizophrenia, but until now, has never been violent, other than self-harming.
"That's not like him," his mother said. "I think he began to feel scared and he's cornered. I just know he's not in his right mind. He needs psychiatric help."
