An 18-year-old Hagerstown man was ordered held at the Washington County Detention Center on a fully secured $100,000 bond Monday on charges he allegedly helped force another man into a sport utility vehicle Sunday and went through his pockets.

Dwight Julius Fulton Jr., of 599 N. Prospect St., was charged with kidnapping, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, handgun in the use of a crime of violence, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, theft more than $500, false imprisonment and conspiracy to commit kidnapping, according to charging documents.

Frederick County District Judge W. Milnor Roberts, sitting in Washington County, ordered Monday that Fulton's $100,000 bond be fully secured. Before the hearing, Fulton was given the chance to post 10 percent of that bond.

"I really wasn't involved," Fulton said via closed circuit television. "I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time."

Before Fulton could continue, Roberts told him not to talk about the details of the case, but just to talk about his bond status.

Police allege in charging documents that Allen Daniels was walking from his High Street residence north toward George Street about 5:38 p.m. when a white Ford Explorer pulled up to him, and Fulton and another man got out of the vehicle. The other man allegedly hit Daniels in the back of the head with a gun, and Fulton and the other man allegedly forced Daniels into the vehicle, documents state. While Daniels was in the vehicle, the other man allegedly held a gun to his head, charging documents state.

Daniels was able to escape, but while he was running down a High Street alley, two shots were fired, but Daniels was not hit, according to charging documents.
