Akron Police have arrested a man in connection with attempting to carjack two people last weekend.
40-year-old David Brown was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and possession of marijuana.
Police say around 10:30 Friday night, a 25-year old woman was stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of North Main Street and Olive Street, when she said a man walked up to her drivers' side window saying he had a gun and told her to get out of her car.
Akron Police Lieutenant Rick Edwards says the woman refused to get out of her car and then the man reached into the car and grabbed her by her face. He allegedly slammed the woman's head against the headrest several times.
The woman took her keys out of the ignition and fled out the passenger side door. The suspect fled to the area of North Howard Street and Penfield Avenue according to police.
Another man told police he was approached by Brown at the intersection of North Main Street and Olive Street.
Brown allegedly told the 29-year-old victim he had a gun and wanted his car. This time, the man put the car in reverse and drove off.
After his arrest, Brown was booked into the Summit County Jail.
