Hagerstown police on Tuesday obtained a warrant charging a man with assault and other counts in connection with the Nov. 15 robbery of the Tekflash computer repair store near City Hall.

Lamont Cortez Hardman, 41, of 321 A N. Locust St. in Hagerstown, who is being sought by police, was charged in the warrant with one count each of first-degree assault, second-degree assault, false imprisonment, kidnapping, robbery, armed robbery and theft of $1,000 to $10,000, according to a Hagerstown Police Department news release that was issued Wednesday.

Officers were called to Tekflash at 61 E. Franklin St. for a report of a robbery on the morning of Nov. 15, police said. When they arrived, a store employee told them that a man walked into the store, claimed to have a weapon, then tied the employee’s hands behind his back with nylon rope.

Police said the man who broke into the store told the employee to sit on the floor.


The robber grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash and two laptops before he left the store, according to police.

Officers said the employee wasn’t injured, and no customers were in the store at the time of the robbery.
