VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A Florida man is facing charges in connection to a robbery and kidnapping that happened just hours before.

Calvin L. Williams, 37, of Jacksonville, FL was arrested Monday morning after officials say he approached a woman with a gun and demanded she drive him from Valdosta to Florida.

Valdosta Police said it happened at 7:40 a.m. in the 1700 block of North Patterson Street.

The victim, Charen Waller, called the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office in Jasper, Florida and told them she was entering her vehicle in Valdosta when Williams initially approached her with a gun.

According to a report, Williams pulled the Waller out of the car and stole it, driving it away himself.

Deputies in Jacksonville, FL later located Williams with the vehicle and took him into custody. He is being held there on separate charges.

Valdosta authorities have also signed arrest warrants on Williams for armed robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Anyone with more information on this crime is urged to contact the Valdosta Police Department at 229-293-3145 or can remain anonymous at 229-293-3091.
