Police: Man carjacks women and then steals more cars
PORT ARTHUR - A trip to Mardi Gras was cut short for two women when, police say, a carjacker slammed into the back of them then stole their car.
It happened last night at the intersection of memorial boulevard and 25th street in Port Arthur.
The women stopped at the intersection at 8 p.m. when the other car slammed into them.
When the female driver got out of the car to see the damage, investigators say, the man attacked her and tried to drive away in her car.
The woman struggled with the man because her friend was still inside.
When the other woman jumped out of the car, the man drove off in the car.
Police say the car he left behind was stolen out of Harris County. They say the woman's car was found in Liberty where the man stole another car.
Investigators say the man drove to Silsbee and took yet another car.
Police arrested the suspect in Lafayette.
