A 19-year-old South Carolina man was arrested after a carjacking near Shirlington last night.
The carjacking happened around 8:30 p.m., at a gas station at the corner of S. Four Mile Run Drive and S. Walter Reed Drive. The suspect drove the victim’s car into Fairfax County but a short time later drove back into Arlington, leading to an attempted traffic stop from which the suspect fled, according to ACPD.
Police say the suspect parked the car a few blocks from where it was stolen and took off on foot. He was later located by officers and taken into custody.
