Three people linked to a carjacking were arrested, and authorities are searching for one man in the case.

Bryson Patterson, 16, Ricky Boykin, 37, and Priscilla Hamilton, 42, were arrested and each are facing charges including, aggravated robbery and armed robbery, said Chief Deputy Chris Nanos of the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

Patterson is being tried as an adult in the case, Nanos said.

Deputies are searching for another man, who was captured on a surveillance camera. He was last seen wearing a T-shirt with an image on the front.     

On June 16 shortly before 1 a.m., Pima County Sheriff's Department deputies responded to the intersection of South Alvernon Way and East Ajo Way to a report of a man down, said Nanos.

Deputies found out that the man lying on the ground was the victim of a carjacking. The victim told investigators that he had been at a north side tavern, the Golden Nugget at 2617 N. First Ave.

The victim said he met a group of people there, and four climbed into his car. The victim said he was in the back passenger seat.

When the driver stopped in an unknown parking lot, one person brandished a gun, and threatened to harm the victim if he did not get out of the car, Nanos said.

They also stole the victim's wallet and other personal belongings before the victim was chased by the car, said Nanos. The victim ran away and was not seriously hurt.

Detectives ask that anyone who has information regarding the unknown man linked to the incident to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
