Police have arrested a man from New Haven charged with robbing and kidnapping two 19-year-old women at a gas station.
According to authorities, Keith Johnson, 53, approached the two women at a North Haven gas station Sept. 29 while pointing a handgun.
Police say Johnson demanded money from the women and ordered them into the car.
He then had the driver take Interstate 91 to Hartford.
Police say Johnson then took over driving the car and left the women in a Hartford neighborhood.
Officers arrested Johnson Monday and charged him with two counts of kidnapping, robbery, robbery of an occupied vehicle, threatening and criminal possession of a firearm.
He is scheduled to appear in court today.
