New tonight a Talent man is behind bars after allegedly trying to lure women into his car.

Late Saturday night Fidel Flores-Avalos was questioned and taken into custody. There were three separate reports over the past week-and-a-half of a man driving near the Medford Center trying to pick up women in his white Jeep Cherokee. In one instance he allegedly tried to physically push a woman into his car. Authorities say they aren't sure if there are other victims.

"His behavior is such that is warranted him to go to jail and certainly causes concern for our community. If there is anybody out there who had a similar situation with him, we'd like to hear about it," said Sgt. Kerry Curtis.

Tonight Flores-Avalos is behind bars at the Jackson County Jail on $5,000 bail with charges of attempted kidnapping.
