Shreveport Man Arrested in Nearly-Year-Old Carjacking Case
Crime scene evidence leads to the arrest of a carjacking suspect.
The carjacking happened nearly a year ago -- on September 14th, 2013 -- in the 200 block of Spring Street. That's where a man was beaten up by a group of males, who also stole his pick-up truck. The victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. His truck was later recovered and taken to the North Louisiana Crime Lab for processing.
DNA evidence from the truck has been matched to 34-year-old Shawn Swift of Shreveport. Police caught up with him this week and arrested him on one count of carjacking.
