One of the two Faulkner County escapees arrested after a low-speed chase Monday is suspected of attacking and carjacking a woman at a Little Rock gas station earlier that morning.
Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said the sport utility vehicle taken in the carjacking at a gas station at 1200 S. University Ave. is the same one pursued from Mayflower to Conway, where Joel Vermillion, 28, of Mayflower and Stacy Wilson, 41, of Vilonia, surrendered.
Davis said in an email that the suspect in the carjacking "is reported to be one of the Faulkner County" escapees, though it wasn't clear which one.
Vermillion, Wilson and Jonathan Jackson, 24, of Greenbrier, all escaped from a jail recreational yard Saturday. Jackson remained on the loose Tuesday.
According to the report on the carjacking, the 51-year-old victim was at the gas station about 7 a.m. when a man who acted as though he had a weapon asked her "if she wanted to live" and then grabbed her.
The man threw the woman to the ground and then got into her sport utility vehicle and drove west onto 12th Street.
The woman was taken to St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center for treatment of lacerations on her head and a possible fracture to her lower back.
