Baton Rouge police arrested two men accused of stealing a woman’s car at gunpoint early Thursday morning on Sheldon Drive.
The woman told police that two men wearing bandanas as masks, Kevin Davis, 19, and Matthew Fontenberry, 18, were following her when she parked her silver 2014 Nissan Altima in a driveway around 12:30 a.m., according to a Baton Rouge police report.
One of the men pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at her and demanded she get out of her car, the report said. The woman said she ran away and the men drove off in her car.
Police spotted the car on Renoir Avenue, and as an officer approached, the men fled in the car, the report said. Davis and Fontenberry refused to pull over as several police units pursued them.
The car slowed as it reached Gus Young Avenue, and both men got out while it was still moving, causing it crash into a fence, the report said.
Davis and Fonteberry, who are both from New Orleans, fled on foot but were apprehended on N. 39th St. by an officer with a police dog, the report said.
Both men were booked in Parish Prison on counts of armed robbery, flight from an officer, resisting an officer and aggravated criminal damage to property
