February 18, 2011|By Jessica Anderson, The Baltimore Sun

A Virginia couple, staying at a hotel near the airport, was forced into a vehicle as a Glen Burnie man attempted to rob them Thursday, Anne Arundel County police said.

The 43-year-old woman and 44-year-old man from Richmond were getting into their vehicle at about 9:45 p.m. near a restaurant in the area of West Nursery Road and Winterson Road when an armed man forced them into their vehicle and demanded money, police said.

The couple told him they had no money but had some in their nearby hotel in the 1100 block of Winterson Road, near BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport.

Police said the carjacker forced them to drive to the hotel, where he instructed the man to go inside and return with money, while he waited with the woman in the car. When the man went inside the hotel, he called 911.

When the man did not return, police said the carjacker, whom police identified as 23-year-old Reginald Charles Callaway, forced the woman to drive away, but officers stopped him on Nursery Road near Interstate 295, where they arrested him.

Callaway, of 110 Range Road in Glen Burnie, is being held on two open warrants. He faces armed robbery, robbery, kidnapping, armed carjacking and additional charges.
