A 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old male are facing criminal charges in an aggravated robbery Wednesday morning in the 2200 block of West 15th Street in Texarkana, Texas.
On Thursday, Texas-side resident Donta Carson was charged with the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and the juvenile, also a Texas-side resident, was charged with aggravated robbery, according to Texarkana, Texas, Police Department.
The robbery took place about 10 a.m. Wednesday. The alleged victim reported that while she was sitting in her vehicle near an apartment complex on West 15th, an unknown young male opened a passenger-side door and got in. He then allegedly pointed a handgun at her and demanded that she give him all her money.
After allegedly taking the woman's purse, the juvenile and two other males, whom the alleged victim said she noticed standing at the rear of her car, ran to a small, white car parked nearby.
The woman then immediately called 911 and provided descriptions of the three males and their vehicle.
When officers arrived, they reportedly saw the white vehicle driving on West 16th Street before it made an abrupt turn into the apartment complex as the patrol car approached. Witnesses reported seeing two men running away from the vehicle, which was parked by the time an officer pulled up.
Officers detained Carson and identified the white car he was driving as a car that had been stolen Tuesday, according to a police report.
With the help of witnesses, police also located and arrested the juvenile in a public area of the apartment complex a short time later.
Carson remains in the Bi-State Justice Building jail. He is being held on a $10,000 bail for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and a $25,000 bail for aggravated robbery.
The teen suspect was taken to the county's juvenile detention center.
