On Sunday at 6 pm, officers responded to a report of a carjacking in the area of Sherwood Dr at Rossi St. The victim (22) called to report that he was carjacked at gunpoint. He told officers he had been sitting in his parked vehicle when a female entered the front passenger side, pointed a handgun at him and ordered him to drive away.
The victim was directed to drive to the area of Soledad St where they stopped, and two individuals came up to the vehicle. One of them took out a knife and held it up against his throat as the other covered his face. The victim was placed in the back seat and they drove to an unknown location where they allowed the victim to exit the vehicle as they drove away.
The victim provided a description of the female suspect and officers conducted a search of the area and located Crystal Lima (24) who matched the description and detained her. She was identified as the suspect and arrested. The two male suspects were not located.
Lima was transported to county jail facing charges of carjacking, conspiracy, and kidnapping charges.
