One of three suspects in a July 23 carjacking in west Lawrence was arrested Saturday evening.

Lawrence woman Deondria Smith, 26, was booked into the jail around 6:30 p.m. on charges of aggravated robbery and is being held on a $50,000 bond.

The other two suspects in the carjacking are Charles E. Reed, 19, and Travis J. Brownlee, 33. The crime occurred about 3:45 a.m. on July 23 in the 2400 block of Winterbrook Drive, southwest of Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive.

A 28-year-old Lawrence man reported to police that night he suffered a head injury after two men, one armed with a handgun, tried to push him into his vehicle. When the man resisted he was struck in the head, and as the victim tried to run for help the suspects stole his vehicle.

The victim was treated at Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

Police believe the suspects are either in Lawrence, Topeka or the Kansas City area.

Lawrence Police warned that the suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is asked to call police, 785-832-7650, or Douglas County Crime Stoppers, 785-843-TIPS (8477). Callers to crime stoppers with information leading to the arrest or one or all of the suspects could receive a cash reward up to $1,000.

I feel bad for the guy carjacked, that would completely suck. However, I think it's hysterical that three people sat around thinking it would be a good idea to jack a car. lololololol. I'm guessing the collective education of these three suspects is less than nill.

"The other two suspects police in the carjacking are Charles E. Reed, 19, and Travis J. Brownlee, 33."

This does not seem to be written correctly. Maybe proofreading would help...just saying.
