(Reidsville, N.C.) – A Virginia man is behind bars in North Carolina after police say he pulled a shotgun and tried to abduct his mother.

33-year-old Gavin Anthony Davis of Stuart is charged with second-degree kidnapping, breaking and entering, assault by pointing a gun and injury to real property.

The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office reports that Davis arrived at his mother’s home on O’Bryant Road in Reidsville about 6:30 Tuesday morning.

When Davis walked out of the home, his mother closed and locked the door and called 911.

Davis is being held at the Rockingham County Detention Center on $100,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on July 31.
