NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — The mother of a Newton teenager says police should have arrested a man who inappropriately touched her daughter while posing as an actor from the movie series "Twilight."

David LaVera, of San Diego, was arrested Tuesday after Baxter police received a kidnapping report. LaVera is charged with enticing a minor and with carrying weapons. Jasper County Jail records say LaVera remained in custody on Friday. Court records don't list the name of his attorney.

The mother of different girl told The Des Moines Register that LaVera had enticed her daughter to a Newton park on June 3 and touched her inappropriately. The mother says LaVera wasn't immediately arrested after she reported the incident.

Newton police Lt. Bill Henninger says the initial report didn't mention any inappropriate touching had occurred.
