Robert Meredith Wall, 43, of 1501 Finch Lane, was charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment and second-degree assault, police said.

Shortly after midnight, a man and a woman, who apparently work together, arranged to exchange items after work, police said.

Detective Sgt. G.R. Turano said the man talked the woman into his car and then drove her against her will from 10524 Sharpsburg Pike to West Virginia.

After about three hours, the man returned her to Hagerstown, Turano said.

"She sort of talked her way into bringing her back, to some extent," he said.

West Virginia authorities are scheduled to talk with the woman on Thursday to investigate whether crimes were committed in that state, Turano said.
