A man who allegedly threatened a woman with a screwdriver and attempted to steal her vehicle was captured by police and charged with two counts of aggravated robbery Monday, according to police.

1600 block of Audubon Court — Three individuals were arrested in connection with throwing large rocks at passing motorists Sunday, according to Carrollton police.

Shortly after being dispatched at 5:45 a.m., an officer located the three suspects behind a stone wall in the neighborhood where rocks were found in the roadway, police said.

All three suspects ran, but the officer was able to catch a 17-year-old suspect and a subsequent investigation by patrol officers later that night resulted in the detaining of two juveniles, police said.

According to a press release from the department, officers learned during an investigation that the three were reportedly responsible for shattering a windshield with a softball-sized rock at 4:15 a.m. while a vehicle was traveling westbound on President George Bush Tollway at McCoy Road.

Police said the suspects have all been charged with engaging in organized criminal activity, a state jail felony, two counts of deadly conduct and evading on foot, both Class A misdemeanors.

Anyone who has suffered personal injury or damage to a vehicle under similar circumstances in the last few weeks, but has not reported the incident, should call the Carrollton Police Department at 972-466-3333.
