MANTENO, IL – A woman arrested for allegedly abducting four young girls in Illinois has had a bond set at $100,000 Wednesday

The accused, Anita Diaz, 47, faces four charges of Aggravated Unlawful Restraint, a Class 3 Felony, after she allegedly coerced the four girls into her vehicle at knifepoint and took them on a harrowing journey across Kankakee County, including her residence.

The incident unfolded at a local park in Manteno, where the girls were allegedly forced into Diaz’s vehicle against their will. The suspect then proceeded to transport them to multiple locations before eventually releasing them unharmed. Authorities acted swiftly and Diaz was apprehended late Monday night by the Manteno Police.

Diaz made an appearance in court today, where a bond hearing was conducted. The judge set her bond at $100,000, and in order to secure her release, she must provide a bail amount of $10,000. She is currently being detained at the Jerome Combs Detention Center pending further legal proceedings.

The next court appearance, an arraignment, has been scheduled for July 31, 2023, at 9:30 AM in Room 309.

In addition to the bond amount, the court has imposed strict conditions, ordering Diaz to have no contact with the victims, identified as B.C., K.D., C.F., and S.W., throughout the duration of the case. Furthermore, the court has ordered a fitness evaluation to be conducted by Dr. James Simone.
