Police Respond to Carjacking Attempt in Flour Bluff

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Police responded to the Burger King on the 1100 block of Waldron in Flour Bluff at around 1 p.m. Wednesday after a customer in the drive-thru reported a carjacking that happened right in front of him.

According to the witness, a male suspect had forced his way into a vehicle, threatening the female driver with a gun and making her get into the backseat.

The manager of that Burger King, Melissa Gonzales, went outside and called police, writing down the license plate number of the white Jeep they drove away in.

"The guy came through our drive-thru," Gonzales said. "There was a car in front of him, the lady told my drive-thru person that she saw him with a gun."

Gonzales watched as the man drove the woman to the Wells Fargo, where police say the suspect planned to force the driver to withdraw money. That plan was foiled as police swarmed the scene.

The woman was able to get away unharmed, but the man tried to flee, hitting two vehicles in the process. He then got out of the vehicle and took off on foot.

Police caught up with the suspect and struggle ensued. They ended up tasing the man and taking him into custody.

Authorities have identified the suspect as 43-year old Craig Davis. He now faces several charges, including aggravated kidnapping.

The woman he tried to kidnap is okay. One officer did receive a minor cut to his head during the struggle. Police say it was thanks to the quick thinking of witnesses at the Burger King drive-thru that the situation came to a peaceful end.
