Two men charged with carjacking at Raleigh gas station
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Two men are in jail after police say they hijacked two people at a gas station in Raleigh.
On January 31, two victims told Memphis police that two men armed with a pistol and an assault rifle assaulted them and claimed their vehicle at a gas station in the 2500 block of Covington Pike.
One of the victims told police that one of the men opened the passenger door and told them to get out of the car. As the victim exited, the suspect asked where the keys were and hit them with the gun.
The second victim was standing near the gas tank when the other suspect hit the side of his body with his gun and demanded the keys.
The two men got into the car and drove off, followed by a light gray vehicle.
Investigators developed Charles Metcalf and Thais Davis as possible suspects in previously solved cases. Both men have been charged with carjacking, aggravated assault and use of a firearm in the commission of a dangerous crime.
The arrest comes after Metcalf admitted to being involved in six other carjackings and being in possession of the stolen handgun earlier this month.
Both men are currently in jail on carjacking and robbery charges. They are scheduled to appear in court on March 17.
