Durham, North Carolina (WTVD) -- Sunday morning Durham police arrested a man wanted for the robbery of four businesses and a Friday carjacking in Raleigh.

Police arrested James Bloodworth on 2100 Liberty Street in Durham.

When police pulled Bloodworth over he was driving a stolen black Nissan SUV. Bloodworth attempted to flee from police by driving through Woodlawn Memorial Cemetery, where he damaged gravestones.

Our crew spoke to the victim that Bloodworth allegedly carjacked from and she says that she feels some relief, she also had a message for him.

"How dare you! I wish nothing good for you or anyone out there like him! You deserve to rot in hell," said the victim.

Durham police handed him off to the Raleigh Police Department and he is now in the Wake County Jail.
