An apparent misunderstanding about an Aurora man's intentions led to charges of misdemeanor disorderly conduct being filed after he was questioned about a report of attempted child abduction.

Salvador Barrera, 50, of the 1300 block of North Glen Circle, was charged Thursday night after approaching a 13-year-old girl walking to Jefferson Middle School about 8:20 that morning near Monomoy Street and Randall Road, according to Aurora police.

After interviewing Barrera and the girl, investigators said it appears he drove up to her and offered a ride to school. The girl did not immediately recognize Barrera as a neighbor, became alarmed and ran from him, police said.

Barrera is scheduled to appear in Aurora branch court at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26.
