Two teens charged with carjacking Garner man’s car
BUNN — Authorities arrested two teenagers charged with carjacking a Garner man.

Orlando Gibbs, 16, of Bunn, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a stolen vehicle, felony larceny and larceny of a motor vehicle following an arrest the morning of April 9.

Youngsville Officer J. Payne made the arrest following a traffic stop on Hinton Lane.

A 14-year-old girl was also taken into custody by sheriffs’ deputies on charges related to the armed robbery, kidnapping and carjacking that was reported the morning of April 7.

It was on April 7 that Augustus Byass reported he stopped at a Youngsville gas station to call a friend for directions to their home when two people, later identified as Gibbs and the juvenile, approached his parked car.

Byass, 50, told authorities they asked for a ride to a home in Bunn.

Since they appeared friendly, Byass agreed.

Byass, from Garner, told Dep. Brandon Strickland he wasn’t familiar with the area, so the black man, who went by the name “S.K.” provided turn-by-turn directions.

As Byass approached the Warren Avenue home, he told authorities that the man and woman began to speak in a “code language” that he did not understand.

As they approached the road, the girl told Byass to do what they said or they would kill him.

They told Byass, according to the report, that they had guns and knives, but they kept their hands in their pockets.

Byass told authorities he did see what appeared to be the handle of a knife.

As they approached a home near a church and parked, S.K. hit Byass in the head and he got out of the Oldsmobile Intrigue he was driving.

They made him lay on the ground and the suspects stole cash, his shoes and a cell phone before driving off in the vehicle, according to the report.

Byass was able to flag down Strickland who was checking a nearby business.
