Carjacking suspect facing four felony charges


SAN LUIS, AZ - The man arrest yesterday for allegedly carjacking a woman in Yuma made his initial court appearance via video today.

Timoteo Orellana Rodriguez had a video conference today with a judge at the San Luis Courthouse this morning.

He faces four felony counts including: endangerment, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping and armed robbery with a threat of using a weapon.

Yuma Police says Rodriguez got into the passenger side of a woman's vehicle after she exited the Albertson's parking lot on 24th Street and Avenue B yesterday afternoon.

The 27-year-old was arrested shortly after and booked into Yuma County Jail.

Rodriguez remains in custody under $56,000 bond.

He's due back in court next week.
