A judge ordered Wednesday that a Prince George’s County man remain in St. Mary’s jail without bond on charging papers alleging he robbed his mother of her boyfriend’s car in Lexington Park, and brandished a baseball bat during a family confrontation in Charles County.

Police eventually found the missing 2004 Chevrolet Corvette on Tuesday night in Suitland, court papers state, and they located Kevin Terrell Gray, 31, in that community about an hour later, with the car’s keys in his pocket. He denied taking or driving the car.

Earlier that day, Gray was at an apartment in Lexington Park with his mother, Janet Denise Briscoe, and when she said she was not ready to leave, charging papers allege, Gray grabbed the keys from her, cutting her hand, and drove away in the car owned by Donald Melvin Davis Sr. of Suitland.

Katika Briscoe, the woman’s daughter, spotted Gray driving the car and followed it to his grandparents’ home in Waldorf, where “Gray was approached by family members, ... [before he] obtained a baseball bat, held it in a threatening manner and told the family to let him go,” according to a statement of probable cause filed by St. Mary’s sheriff’s Cpl. Deborah Milam.

Police later found the car abandoned a few blocks from Davis’ home, court papers state, and they drove Gray back to St. Mary’s to be charged with robbery, carjacking and second-degree assault.
