Uniontown Man Arrested And Charged With Kidnapping

State police in Bedford County say a man is behind bars after he reportedly kidnapped a driver over the weekend and then assaulted several customers at a local Sheetz store.

According to the affidavit, authorities say troopers were dispatched early Sunday morning for an incident at the Everett Borough Sheetz.

Troopers say Everett Borough Police had arrested a man, who was later identified as 37-year-old Calvin Huffman, of Uniontown, and stated that there were several victims and witnesses involved in said incident.

Upon further investigation, troopers say the incident began when Huffman reportedly kidnapped a Woodbury Township resident following a crash near the intersection of Woodbury Pike and Curryville Road.

Police say the resident reportedly lived near the crash scene and had driven to it to assist those involved.

Investigators say the driver was allegedly approached by Huffman, who then entered the vehicle and punched the driver in the face.

Authorities say Huffman then reportedly “forced” the victim to drive away from the scene, while claiming that he had a weapon.

According to the affidavit, troopers say the driver repeatedly tried to drop Huffman off at various locations, to which Huffman reportedly refused and made several comments about “not wanting to go back to jail.”

Police say Huffman eventually exited the vehicle at the Everett Borough Sheetz.

Investigators say, according to multiple witnesses, Huffman then entered the store and began “randomly” assaulting multiple customers.

Troopers say an employee eventually subdued Huffman by pinning him against the counter, until police arrived.

Police say the victims all suffered various minor injuries.

Investigators noted that the entire incident was captured on store surveillance video.

According to online court records, Huffman was arraigned Sunday on a variety of charges, including robbery of a motor vehicle, kidnapping, unlawful restraint and simple assault.

He is being held at the Bedford County Jail on $400,000 bail
