A judge in Cleveland has set a $3 million bond for a man charged with abducting and raping a 6-year-old girl and attempting to abduct a 10-year-old girl.

An attorney entered a not-guilty plea for 29-year-old Justin Christian during an arraignment Thursday. Christian was indicted Monday on multiple counts of rape, kidnapping and aggravated burglary.

He is accused of trying to take the 10-year-old from her bedroom in Elyria (eh-LEER'-ee-uh) in February and abducting the 6-year-old from her Cleveland home in May. Authorities say the 10-year-old fought him off, and he held the 6-year-old for 17 hours.

Authorities say Christian became a suspect after investigators found a close match of DNA from the crime scenes with DNA from a relative of Christian's.

Christian's attorney didn't return a message seeking comment.
