Carjacking delays trip to hospital for pregnant woman in labor

Armed men carjacked the vehicle of a pregnant woman in labor as she was heading to the hospital, according to police in Annapolis, Md. Two men were taken into custody and a third was being sought.

The woman, who was not identified, was taken to a hospital where officials on Monday said they could not discuss the case because of privacy restrictions.

The incident began about  4:30 a.m. at the 1800 block of Copeland Street in Annapolis, according to police.

The 24-year-old woman told police three men armed with two shotguns and a handgun approached her and her boyfriend as they were getting into their car.

When police, responding to an emergency call, arrived on the scene, two of the men fled in the couple's car, police said.

After officers gave chase, the men abandoned the vehicle and were caught on foot, police said.

Police charged Devery Kelley, 24, of Glen Burnie and Cornell Robinson, 44, of Washington, D.C. with armed robbery, first degree assault and various weapon violations.

The third man — who has not been identified — fled in another car, the woman told police.
