St. Petersburg, Florida - Twenty-four hours after a teenager was carjacked at gunpoint, the suspects are arrested after they tried to escape capture.
It started on Tuesday evening along the 1800 block of 64th Ave. North when two men carjacked the teenager for her 2013 Hyundai Sonata at gunpoint.
"He hit me with the butt of his right under my eye, pick up my phone right after I'd thrown in. Got into my car and drove away," said 17-year-old Giana Wagenman.
One Wednesday evening around 6:30 p.m., St. Petersburg police spotted the suspects at a Citgo gas station at 4210 Park Blvd N.
The carjacking suspects were seen in Giana's car and there was another vehicle, an Infinity, driven by an associate of the suspects sitting right behind it.
When police surrounded the suspects, the drivers of both cars tried to ram their way through by hitting and knocking over a gas pump, and then both cars smashed into police cruisers while trying to get away.
St. Petersburg Police Officer Eric Holmes was injured when one of the suspect crashed into his cruiser. He was transported to the hospital to be treated for his injuries.
One of the carjacking suspect, 18-year-old Corey Ellis, has been charged with aggravated battery and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, but not with the carjacking... as of yet.
10 News is not identifying the second suspect because he is underage.
Charges are still pending against Mundae Francis, the driver of the Infinity.
