PREVIOUS STORY: Police say the three men who carjacked an elderly woman traveled to Atlanta with plans to commit crime.
Atlanta Police say Dominique Jackson, Malik Rollins and a juvenile traveled to Atlanta from Tennessee in early October. According to police, on October 3, they attacked a 71-year-old woman at the Lutheran Towers Senior Living Center. They held her at gunpoint and stole her car. That car was later found in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Witnesses helped police develop sketches of the suspects, and investigators used evidence from the car and other sources to link three suspects to the crime.
“The arrest of these three men show that law enforcement partnerships are instrumental in solving crime,” Chief George Turner said in a statement. “Individuals who come into our city to commit crimes will quickly learn of the resolve, courage, and ingenuity of the dedicated men and women of the Atlanta Police Department.”
All three men have been charged with hijacking of a motor vehicle, aggravated assault, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. They are currently awaiting extradition from Tennessee to Georgia. Investigators are working to determine if the group is responsible for any other crimes.
