A second 18-year-old Raleigh man has been arrested on charges stemming from two carjackings in which woman had their vehicles stolen at gunpoint on the night of Oct. 11.

Police took Shawn Maurice Anthony Driscoll of 419 Lynn Road into custody about 6 p.m. Wednesday near 7200 Six Forks Road, arrest records showed.

Driscoll is charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a stolen vehicle and two counts of conspiracy to commit the armed robberies.

When Kaivon Shimeek Lewis, 18, was arrested the day after the cars were taken from two women, police had said they were seeking a second suspect. They named Driscoll in arrest warrants issued that day.

The first carjacking happened about 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 11 in the 600 block of Newton Road, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

A woman told police that men approached her with a handgun and demanded her keys after she had parked her Honda Civic.

About 9:45 p.m., less than a mile away, a woman getting out of a car on Royal Anne Lane was approached by armed men. They took her purse, wallet, cell phone and Nissan Altima, the charges said.

The possession charge against Driscoll involved the Honda, which police said Lewis was driving when they stopped him. The Nissan had been found behind a business several hours after it was taken, police said.

Driscoll was held in lieu of $200,000.
