A Headland man has been arrested on charges he attempted to entice children for immoral purposes. Kennon Obryan Hester, 35, was captured Saturday after allegedly chasing two young girls in a residential neighborhood near Alexander Drive.

Police Chief Greg Benton said the Hester first offered the girls free clothing and they declined. The youths then ran to an adult with Hester chasing. He was arrested a short time later at Alexander Court Apartments.

Houston County District Judge Benjamin Lewis ordered Hester held without bond pending a hearing.
