A second teen wanted in connection with an armed robbery and kidnapping in November was arrested Friday morning.

Enrique Durazo, 17, is facing charges of unlawful means of transport, theft of means of transport, armed robbery, aggravated robbery, burglary and two counts of kidnapping in connection with a carjacking, Deputy Courtney Rodriguez, a spokeswoman for the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, said in an email.

“One of our deputies … spotted him on the street near Cardinal and Valencia and picked him up,” she said.

Earlier this week, another carjacking suspect, Israel Godoy, 16, turned himself in to sheriff’s investigators. Both teens are being charged as adults because of the seriousness of the crimes, Rodriguez said.

Godoy and Durazo are suspects in the carjacking and kidnapping of a woman on Nov. 29 as she was putting gas in her vehicle at the Circle K at 4605 W. Valencia Road at South Camino de Oeste. Both arrived at the convenience store in a stolen car, left the car there and then approached the woman, Rodriguez said.

The 54-year-old woman was released about 1½ miles from the convenience store, and Godoy and Durazo left in her car, which was later found abandoned in a wash, Rodriguez said.
