BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Two teens are in custody after they allegedly carjacked a woman, repeatedly sexually battered her, then forced her to withdraw money from an ATM. The incidents occurred in Pompano Beach, south of Boca Raton.
BSO issued this statement early Saturday morning:
Detectives with the Broward Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit arrested an 18-year-old and a 16-year-old on charges that include sexual battery and kidnapping.
According to investigators around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14, Corey Jones and a 16-year-old male, committed armed kidnapping and sexual battery on an adult female by carjacking her at gunpoint.
Detectives said the two armed males approached the victim as she was returning home and forced her into the backseat of her car. The suspects drove her to an unknown location and sexually battered her multiple times. Then they drove her to a bank ATM and forced her to withdraw money from her account and sexually battered her again. The victim was able to get help when the suspects eventually forced her out of her car and fled in it.
On Thursday, Sept. 15, detectives located the victim’s vehicle in Pompano Beach and observed Jones in the driver’s seat. Jones attempted to flee but was swiftly taken into custody. In his attempt to evade deputies Jones dropped two phones; one of the recovered phones belonged to the victim.
On Friday, Sept. 16, detectives took the 16-year-old male into custody and transported him to the Juvenile Assessment Center for processing.
Both Jones and the 16-year-old confessed to the offenses. They each face felony charges of sexual battery with a weapon, kidnapping an adult, carjacking with a firearm and robbery with a weapon.
