FRESNO – Police arrested three suspects from Selma on allegations that they carjacked a woman at gunpoint over the weekend in central Fresno.
The incident happened just before 6 a.m. on Saturday in the 2000 block of N. Farris Avenue. Two men, one of whom was carrying a sawed-off shotgun, approached the woman outside of her home.
The suspect with the gun pointed it at her and told her to sit on the curb. The men then took off in the woman’s vehicle, also taking her purse. The suspect who had driven the men to the home followed in a blue Dodge Neon, authorities said.
Police located the woman’s stolen car early the next morning and arrested the two suspects inside, identified as 19-year-old Hector Montano and a 17-year-old juvenile, both from Selma. The shotgun was found hidden in the vehicle and detectives were able to get a confession from both the suspects, police said.
The driver of the blue Neon, 25-year-old Otha Gray, also of Selma, was arrested in Reedley. He was identified as a Selma Bulldog gang member.
All three suspects face carjacking charges.
