A 21-year-old man was arrested Sunday afternoon after a Severn cabbie was robbed of cash and a cellular telephone, county police said.

The cabbie, Wayne H. Kim, 52, of Severn, picked up a man about 3:30 p.m. at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, police said. Mr. Kim told him he would not be able to take him to his Baltimore destination but would drop him off at the Amtrak station on Route 170, police said.

Mr. Kim told police that when he arrived at the station, the fare put his hand inside his coat and said, "Give me the money."

The man took an undisclosed amount of money and Mr. Kim's cellular phone, and ran into nearby woods.

A suspect was arrested a short time later, but the cellular telephone was not recovered and no gun was found, police said.

William Arthur Harris, of no fixed address, was charged with robbery, police said.
