Two teens arrested in NLR kidnapping, carjacking

Posted: January 17, 2014 - 1:40pm

NORTH LITTLE ROCK - Two teenagers have been arrested and charged as adults in the kidnapping, aggravated robbery and theft of property case in North Little Rock.

Davieion McElroy, 16 and Vincent Shabazz, 15, are both from North Little Rock. Police are still looking for a third suspect.

On Jan. 13, Thomas Kenley, 18, was parked at the tennis courts at Burns Park waiting on some friends. Witnesses say he was approached by three black men. Kenley later told police that one of the men had a revolver and forced him in the back seat.

The victim was driven to Little Rock where he was reportedly forced to provide his pin number and cash was taken from his bank account. Davieion McElroy’s picture was taken at an ATM when he was allegedly withdrawling cash from the victim’s debit card.

The suspects then drove to a wooded area of Frazier Pike where Kenley says he was forced out of the vehicle and the suspects fired bullets around him. Kenley was able to get away and find someone to help him. His vehicle, wallet, cell phone and cash were stolen.

The investigators received a tip as to the identity of Davieion McElroy and he was identified as the driver of the victim’s vehicle in the photo at the ATM. The investigation lead to Vincent Shabazz who was positively identified as a participant in this incident.

The 3rd suspect is being sought at this time and we expect additional charges for him when he is apprehended.

The suspects were charged as adults for these crimes. The suspects were taken into custody at the Juvenile Detention Center while being held on unrelated charges.

The victim’s blue 2007 Isuzu 370 Ascender was located north of McCain mall on Wednesday.

Good thing the victim was Black (assumed)

Otherwise this would have to be classified as a hate crime.
