The complaint states Douglas told the other woman to drive and took both women’s cellphones. He threatened to shoot Smith in the head before she got out of the car. Douglas followed her and forced her into his car before driving off.

Smith returned home Saturday evening in the car in which Douglas allegedly took her. She told police Douglas planned to kill her and himself.

Douglas is still at large, and police said he is potentially armed and dangerous. Police said Douglas is 6 feet tall, 170 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911.

Douglas faces two counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of assault and one count of kidnapping. A warrant is out for his arrest.
