Reginald McNeill had pepper spray, handcuffs and tie-up cord ready when he ambushed, kidnapped and carjacked a Montgomery County waitress as she left work early Sunday.
Still, the 53-year-old Logan man swears he meant no harm.
“I wasn’t going to hurt her or hurt anybody. I’m sorry deeply,” a shackled and hangdog McNeill told reporters this morning, as officers escorted him to his arraignment.
Police pooh-poohed that claim today, saying McNeill is a convicted sex offender, burglar and prison escapee released in March 2009 after serving 27 years for a 1978 rape and other felonies.
