3 Charged in Metro-East carjacking

KMOV - Three women are in custody after allegedly carjacking another woman over the weekend.

The victim was approached by three women while in her car at St. Clair Square on Sunday. One of the three women asked the victim for a ride, which she obliged.

When they got to their destination, the suspects implied they had a gun, and threatened to use it on the victim if she did not hand over her keys. The victim was able to safely escape the vehicle, at which time the suspects drove away in her car.

East St. Louis police located the stolen car Sunday afternoon, taking the three suspects into custody.

The suspects, Lakeisha Johnson, Candice Johnson, and Angela Guyton, have each been charged with carjacking, aggravated robbery, and unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle.

All three suspects are being held at the St. Clair County Jail.
