A Baltimore man was arrested on allegations he forced his way into a home on Forest Drive, bound the people inside with duct tape and robbed them on Thursday evening, according to Annapolis Police.
Akeem Smith, 27, of Baltimore faces multiple charges in connection to the incident that occurred at about 9 p.m. Thursday in the the 2000 block of Forest Drive.
A man told police that Smith confronted him when he was leaving his house, pointed a gun at him and ordered him back inside, according to police. The man reported that Smith used duct tape to secure his hands and the hands of a woman who was also inside the house. Smith reportedly took $3,230 from the man's pocket and fled, police said.
