Feb 18, 2014

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Five teenagers face charges in connection to a carjacking in Omaha.

Omaha police say a woman reported early Sunday that juveniles approached her as she pulled her car into a parking stall at an apartment complex.

The woman said one suspect displayed a firearm then took her cellphone and car keys. The juveniles allegedly fled in her vehicle.

Police later located the car and tried to pull it over. The car fled but then collided with a light pole. The suspects fled but were eventually apprehended.

The five teenagers face charges, and at least four face a robbery charge. Three of the suspects are juveniles. The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles charged with crimes. Court records do not list attorneys for 19-year-old Tomas Smith and 18-year-old Armon Jackson.
