TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Police have now arrested the man they say tried to grab a woman at a New Tampa park.

James Wood, 22, is charged with felony attempted kidnapping. Police say he's the man seen in surveillance photos at Hampton Park on Monday.

A woman told police she was at the park with her two children when a man crept up behind her. She told police he tried to grab her young daughter from her arms.

A security guard chased the man, but he got away.

Officers say they found Wood at a hospital several hours after the incident thanks to tips from the public. They arrested him yesterday after he was released from doctors' care.

He's being held without bond.
