Man charged with kidnapping
An Owings man was charged Wednesday with kidnapping his estranged wife at gunpoint outside her workplace, Anne Arundel County police said.
Police said Anthony Corrado, 41, of 1750 Fowler Road, was brandishing a sawed-off shotgun when he forced his 41-year-old wife, Elizabeth Jane Corrado, into a car in a Crofton parking lot outside the bank where she is employed.
After witnesses called police, officers canvassed the area and immediately found the vehicle.
Corrado was charged with kidnapping, first- and second-degree assault, false imprisonment, reckless endangerment, violation of a protective order, witness retaliation and possession of a deadly weapon with intent to injure. The victim suffered minor injuries.
Court records show Corrado was ordered to stay away from his wife July 9. On Tuesday, the day before the alleged kidnapping, Corrado was charged with eight counts of violating the protective order and one count of stalking.
