TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrested three suspects and are working to identify a fourth person in connection with an armed carjacking.

Deputies found the 23-year-old victim of the alleged carjacking lying on the ground just before 1 a.m. on June 16 at the intersection of S. Alvernon Way and E. Ajo Way. He was reportedly introduced to the suspects earlier that night at the Golden Nugget bar when the four suspects got into the victim’s car with the victim in the back passenger seat, according to PCSD Chief Deputy Chris Nanos.

Nanos said the driver stopped in a parking lot in an unknown area and one suspect pulled out a gun and threatened harm to the victim if he didn't get out of the car.

The suspects took the victim’s wallet and personal belongings, then chased him with the car once he got out, according to Nanos. The victim was able to escape and did not have any serious injuries.

Police later identified and arrested 16-year-old Bryson “Blue” Patterson, 37-year-old Ricky Boykin and 42-year-old Priscilla Hamilton in connection with the incident. 

Authorities charged Patterson with aggravated assault, armed robbery, aggravated robbery and theft of means of transportation. Boykin faces charges of armed robbery, aggravated robbery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and theft of means of transportation. Hamilton was charged with armed robbery, aggravated robbery and unlawful use of means of transportation.

Authorities described the remaining suspect as Hispanic and was last seen wearing a t-shirt with a decal or image on the front. They said he has been known to hang around with Patterson near the Tucson Inn

Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
