Around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, a 10-year-old boy was walking home from the Pine Valley Elementary School playground when a car started to follow him, according to the sheriff's office.
After detectives conducted multiple interviews, they charged Mark Christopher Sewell, 18, and Jaquelyn Crystal Martin, 16, with attempted felonious restraint and misdemeanor stalking.
The arrest warrants state the defendants "knew or should have known that the harassment or the course of conduct would cause a reasonable person to fear for that person's safety and suffer substantial emotional distress by placing that person in fear of death, bodily injury or continued harassment."
Sewell and Martin were released Friday on $10,000 unsecured bonds.
Detectives are still investigating, said Deputy J.L. Augst, an assistant public information officer.
