A 47-year-old Carney man was arrested and charged with kidnapping his 65-year-old girlfriend and assaulting her and her 10-year-old grandson, Baltimore County police said yesterday.

Nathaniel "Sonny" Knox of the 9000 block of Waltham Woods Road was charged with kidnapping and two counts of second-degree assault after he forced Burnetta Mae Ajide out of the apartment they shared and into her car during a argument Tuesday, said Cpl. Michael Hill, a police spokesman. Ajide's grandson called 911 about 11 a.m. Tuesday Hill said. About 2:40 p.m. Tuesday, police found the couple getting into a car near Glen Keith Boulevard and Edgewood Road and arrested Knox, who was being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center, officials said.
