A Severn man faces multiple charges in connection with an armed robbery Friday night in Glen Burnie, according to Anne Arundel County police.
Christopher Michael Fay, 29, of the 8200 block of Quarterfield Road in Severn was charged with armed robbery, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, armed carjacking, kidnapping and theft less than $100, according to online court records.
Fay reportedly got into a taxi cab in Severn around 7:54 p.m. Friday. A 24-year-old taxi driver for A.A County Cab Connection told police Fay pointed a handgun at him and demanded money. The driver told police he complied and proceeded to drive Fay to various locations, including the Dash In located at 7845 Quarterfield Rd. in Glen Burnie.
Officers responded at about 9:08 p.m. Friday for a reported armed robbery at the Dash In. A cashier told police that Fay and the driver entered the store and Fay pulled out a handgun, demanding a customer's wallet but the customer did not comply.
Fay allegedly pointed the handgun at the cashier and demanded he open the register but the cashier refused. Police said Fay stole some cigarettes and left the store with the driver in a taxi.
According to the release, Fay eventually left the cab and the driver reported the incident. Officers searched the area and soon located Fay at a local fast food restaurant and took him into custody without incident.
