A Weirton man is behind bars Thursday after allegedly attempting to lure children into his car near a local high school.
Steubenville police said they received a call about a suspicious car in the area of Steubenville High School.
When they arrived, police found 81 year old Paul Mastrantoni parked in the 800 block of North Fourth Street in Steubenville.
Mastrantoni is facing two counts of criminal child enticement.
He entered a not guilty plea in Jefferson County Common Pleas Court to both charges.
A preliminary hearing has been set for November 21.
