DAYTONA BEACH, FL – A Deltona man who agreed to drive three men from DeLand to Deltona in exchange for gas money became the victim of an armed carjacking Tuesday night when one passenger stabbed his arm and stole the car.
According to authorities, shortly afterward, the car and suspect were spotted in Daytona Beach where police and deputies ultimately apprehended Emmanuel Johnson, 31 of Daytona Beach after he bailed out of the car and fled to nearby woods.
Earlier Tuesday, sheriff’s deputies were called to the Winn-Dixie, 2880 Howland Blvd., in Deltona at 8:34 p.m. for a reported armed carjacking.
The victim told deputies he drove the trio from DeLand to the Winn-Dixie. Soon after arrival, the victim announced he needed to leave, angering the suspect, who was sitting behind him in the rear passenger seat.
