Police Arrest Two Teen Boys in Burns Park Carjacking, Kidnapping

Both are being charged as adults in Jan. 13 incident.
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR - Two teen boys have been arrested in a carjacking and kidnapping that happened earlier this week in Burns Park.

Davieion McElroy, 16 and Vincent Shabazz, 15, both of North Little Rock, are charged as adults with kidnapping, theft of property by force, and aggravated robbery in the case. Police are still looking for a third suspect.

McElroy and Shabazz are accused of forcing a teen boy at gunpoint to let them into his pickup truck before driving him to ATM's and taking cash from his bank account. The teen was released but after he got out of the truck, the suspects allegedly shot at him and then drove away in his vehicle with his wallet, cell phone and cash.

The victim told investigators he had been waiting on some friends to play tennis at Burns Park before a tap on his window began the ordeal.  

One of the ATM's visited in the incident provided police with surveillance video of the crime in progress.

The victim's truck was found on Wednesday just north of McCain Mall.

Police say McElroy and Shabazz were taken into custody at the Juvenile Detention Center while being held on unrelated charges.
