KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Two new charges have been filed and bond revoked for a man accused of attempting to kidnap a Pellissippi State-Hardin Valley Campus student last week.

A judge revoked Gregory Crenshaw's bond Friday morning after new charges of carrying weapons on school property and reckless endangerment were filed.

Police say the female victim told them on June 19 that a man tried to forcibly remove her from the school's walking trail at gunpoint.

Investigators determined the suspect, later identified as Crenshaw, fled to a building and changed clothes immediately. He was then stopped and frisked, and determined not to have a gun.

The gun was later found on the ground near where the alleged assault happened.

Police say the reckless endangerment charge was filed because the gun was discarded in tall grass, presenting an immediate danger to maintenance workers who might encounter it with powered equipment.

Crenshaw was previously charged with aggravated kidnapping. He is scheduled to be back in court July 9 for a preliminary hearing.
