Man arrested in Wareham on kidnapping, carjacking charges

Man allegedly kidnapped 75-year-old woman, attempted to carjack vehicle with two-month old infant on board; victims uninjured

WAREHAM — Carol Widner was loading her groceries into her car trunk when she felt something dig into her back. The man said that it was a gun and that she should do what he said.

Widner, a 75-year-old who lives just down the street from the market, told the man she had no money on her and had left her cellphone at home. The man then told Widner to drive him to the bank and withdraw $300, according to police. But Widner said she had no bank card.
