Good Samaritan Couple Describe Carjacking

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

A Good Samaritan couple who wound up getting carjacked not far from Hamilton Place Mall described the ordeal in court testimony.

Sarah Camp and Christopher Stock testified in the case in which Joshua Lishun Brewer is charged with carjacking.

Brewer only turned 17 in April, but his cases were transferred to adult court. Prosecutors said he is also facing counts of sexual battery, assault and possession of marijuana.

Ms. Camp said Mr. Stock picked her up from her bartending job last Wednesday around 11:45 p.m. and they were on Igou Gap Road almost to Gunbarrel Road headed for her apartment.

She said they spotted someone lying in a ditch appearing to be injured, and her boyfriend told her to turn around. She said they helped the youth up and asked where he lived, and he said Eastdale.

About that time, three other guys wearing blue bandannas came out of hiding. One was behind a tree and two others were in some bushes.

Mr. Stock said prior to the others coming out, he had determined to take the alleged "victim" to the hospital.

The incident was near the Mr. Zip.

The couple was told at gunpoint to give up their vehicle. Ms. Camp took the car key off her ring of keys and tossed it to them, then they drove off. She said the car was recovered about 4 or 4:30 the next morning.

Police said the suspects were located by patrol officers in the 3500 block of Ridgeside Road. 

All four were charged with carjacking.

It was Brewer who was lying in the ditch, it was stated.
