After 2 p.m. Friday, a woman told police that a man flashed a handgun at her on I-95 near the Prince George’s County and Howard County lines, Maryland State Police said.

State police said he also had two rifles, including an assault rifle, a shotgun and ammunition in the SUV. Hayah was arrested at the scene and faces charges of use of a firearm in a felony, assault and related counts.

No one was injured, and the investigation is ongoing, state police added.
