TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson police have arrested one of two suspects in a carjacking that happened last year.

According to a TPD tweet, 26-year-old Richard Godoy was arrested early Thursday morning, March 9, after several hours of negotiations with police officers.

He was located in the 4600 block of East 19th Street.

Police are still looking for a Hispanic woman, who they say is also a suspect in this case.

According to Sgt. Pete Dugan, the suspects allegedly assaulted a cab driver and stole his taxi on Sept. 12 last year at a gas station at 4659 E. 22nd Street.

Dugan said the taxi driver refused to take them. He was outside the car when the alleged assault happened.

The taxi was found a few days later on the northwest side of Tucson. Detectives are withholding the exact location of where the cab was found because the investigation is ongoing.
