SEATTLE (Reuters) - A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on kidnapping charges in Washington state stemming from an attempted abduction of a toddler that was caught on video and thwarted by the baby's older siblings and other witnesses, officials said on Wednesday.

The teenager was taken into custody following several days of interviews, DNA testing and a search warrant on his home in Sprague, southwest of Spokane, where the kidnapping occurred, the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office said.
