Little Rock Police have charged a 17-year-old boy with a woman's carjacking in the River Market earlier this month.
The unnamed juvenile suspect is charged with aggravated robbery and theft of property in the case.
The November 16 incident happened on President Clinton Avenue about 8:30 that night.
The victim was forced out of the passenger side of a 2012 Hyundai at gunpoint before the suspect took her cellphone and drove off with the car. The stolen vehicle was found in North Little Rock thanks to tracking the woman had on her cellphone, but the suspect jumped out and ran away. The officer who tried to stop him reportedly recognized the boy, who police said had "numerous active arrest warrants for aggravated robbery."
The boy was arrested two days later and charged with four counts of aggravated robbery and theft of property on warrants from North Little Rock.
Today, he was charged by Little Rock Police in the River Market incident.
Original Report (November 17):
There were terrifying moments for one woman in the River Market Friday (11/16) night.
She's shared with us her frightening tale after she had a gun held to her head as she was forced out of her car.
Alana Bakke said she was waiting on her son sitting in the passenger side of her car when a man came up and asked to use her cellphone. She told him no but that she would make a call for him. That's when she says everything changed.
"I mean it happened so fast that he opened my door and cocked it... the gun," Bakke explained. "And [he] did it sideways like this to my head and told me get out of the car."
She immediately obliged, all the while fearing for her life.
"As he was pulling out I got down on my knees and I just started praying because I didn't know if he was going to shoot me as he was driving off. I mean that thought went through my head."
The armed robber took the car and made it across the river into North Little Rock.
The police however were able to track the vehicle down because Bakke had a tracking system on her phone. The thief however, ran from the car when police got there.
