A second person was arrested Friday in Thursday night's robbery-carjacking in which a 13-year-old boy was thrown from a moving vehicle, Detective Lt. Frank Granto said.
Courtney A. Myles, 17, of Mackenna Avenue was charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree assault and unlawful imprisonment by Detective Anthony Conte, Granto said.
Myles and Ernest T. Carter, 17, of Niagara Avenue, along with a third suspect, are accused of robbing Willie Mills of Calumet Avenue of $300 and a gold chain at gunpoint at 9:30 p.m. Thursday on Centre Avenue and 20th Street, Granto said.
The three then allegedly took a vehicle belonging to Mario Taylor of 24th Street at gunpoint and drove away with Taylor's 13-year-old brother and 5-year-old sister inside. The boy thrown out of the vehicle suffered a broken leg and multiple contusions.
The vehicle then crashed into a fence and a house, but the girl was not injured, Conte said, and the suspects fled on foot.
Granto said police are still searching for the third suspect.
