An Indianapolis man is behind bars after he allegedly carjacked a woman on the city's south side Thursday morning and then allegedly robbed a 13-year-old at a bus stop.
IMPD says officers were called to the 4400 block of Madison Avenue around 9:00 a.m. on a report of a carjacking. A woman told officers her car was taken at gunpoint. The suspect, later identified as 20-year-old Jerry Metcalf, looked at the victim and said, "Don't even try it. I'll kill you," and drove off.
Officers found Metcalf in the vehicle a short time later and took Metcalf into custody. Officers later discovered that Metcalf had also robbed a 13-year-old at his bus stop and took his mp3 player. No injuries were reported.
Metcalf faces charges of robbery, carjacking and auto theft. He's being held on 160-thousand dollars bond and has an initial court hearing on Monday.
