A man is facing charges of kidnapping, home invasion, armed robbery and other offenses following his arrest in the parking lot of a bank in Cambridge.

Cambridge Police said Wednesday that a woman walked into the branch Tuesday and told employees she was being held against her will and was in fear for her life.

Police said the victim had visible signs of injuries but did not seek medical treatment.

Cambridge Police listed these charges against Cannon:

kidnapping, home invasion, armed robbery, robbery, 1st and 2nd degree assault, false imprisonment, and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle.

Cannon was being held at the Dorchester County Detention Center on no bond.
