    Two men are accused of carjacking another man and demanding a ride to a Virginia convenience store.

    The victim, a Maryland resident, told authorities that he was driving on Foxcroft Road in Middleburg, Va. around 5:15 p.m. Friday when he saw two men walk into the roadway and stop two vehicles ahead of him. Both vehicles sped away, and the men then approached his vehicle and demanded he drive them to a 7-Eleven in Purcellville.

    At one point during the drive, the victim was able to contact 911.

    Authorities met the vehicle at the Purcellville West End 7-Eleven, where they arrested Michael L. Jackson, 45, of Aldie, Va., and Maurice Smith, 47, of no fixed address.

    Jackson and Smith are charged with abduction and conspiracy to commit a felony. Smith also faces a charge of possession of marijuana.

    The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is asking the drivers of the other two vehicles or any other witnesses to contact Deputy Specialist S. McCormack at 571-246-5089.

    Jackson and Smith are being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
