A Mill Cove, N.S., man has been charged with kidnapping and robbery after an incident where fishermen in Terence Bay were threatened and told to hand over their catch.

Halifax District RCMP were called to Terence Bay Road around 9:40 p.m. Sunday.

Two fishermen reported seeing a vehicle driving erratically toward the area where they had placed their nets.

Police said the men were armed and told the fishermen to drive to another area where other nets had been set.

After the men left, the fishermen called RCMP.
