Two arrested, two sought in Raleigh armed carjackings

Raleigh police are looking for two more suspects in incidents Wednesday night.
Raleigh police arrested two teens and are now on the hunt for more suspects in a carjacking and an attempted carjacking.

They say the attempted carjacking was reported at 9:10 p.m. Wednesday in a shopping plaza in the 6200 block of Rock Quarry Road.

"I'm still kind of scared to go back around there in that area," said wife and mother of two Carrie Shearin.

Shearin and her husband were grabbing dinner in that plaza. She was behind the wheel and her husband was in the passenger seat when, all of the sudden, a man was at her window.

"As soon as we pulled up to the stop sign, I looked and I see a guy with a bandana on and he's like yanking at the door like, 'Get out the car! Get out the car,'" said Shearin. "When I screamed, he reached down like he was grabbing something, like he was going to grab a gun. When I saw that, I gunned down the gas all the way down to the floor and just took off."

She only saw the one person at her window but when her husband turned around she says he saw more people coming right for them.

"He saw four more coming from behind the building," said Shearin. "He said it looked like they were coming, like they were going for the back door."

They got away and called 911. But the next target wouldn't be so lucky.

Raleigh police say they received a second 911 call of a carjacking in the 5900 block of Brambleton Avenue. Police quickly spotted the stolen car nearby, but the suspects gave chase. They lost control and the car went off road near Pearl Road. Police say the suspects got out and starting running.

Police arrested 16-year-old Jonathan Surles and 17-year-old Kevon Hicks at Grandover Drive and Landreaux Drive. Both are charged with robbery, attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery in connection with two incidents. In addition, Hicks is charged with speeding to elude officers.

Police are now looking for the other suspects involved. Anyone with information that might assist detectives in identifying the other two suspects should call Raleigh CrimeStoppers at (919) 834-HELP or visit www.raleighcrimestoppers.org.
