A 49-year-old James City County man is facing numerous charges after police say he forced a 17-year-old girl out of her car at gunpoint.
Brian Waymire was arrested early Saturday and charged with abduction and brandishing a firearm in connection with the incident, JCC police said.
Police said the victim told them that Waymire approached her vehicle with a flashlight while she was parked late Friday outside a friend’s house in the 100 block of Lands End Drive. Waymire allegedly displayed a handgun to the victim and told her to get out of her vehicle and put her keys on the ground.
Waymire at first refused to let the teen go but then eventually released her, police said. Authorities do not know why he released her nor how much time passed between the beginning of the incident to when the victim was released, police spokeswoman Stephanie Williams said.
The victim reported the incident around midnight Friday when she arrived home. She told police that Waymire was an acquaintance.
