Jacksonville, FL (March 19, 2019) – 40-year-old Omar Rahir Mustafa was arrested for carjacking and kidnapping a teenager from a Jacksonville gas station, according to Jacksonville police.
At the time, police say that 19-year-old Henry Lee Caine was fueling up his vehicle around midnight on Friday at a BP gas station near I-95. Suddenly, Mustafa entered from the passenger’s side of his vehicle and showed him that he had a silver handgun.
Mustafa ordered Caine to drive around before he took the driver’s seat from him. He then picked up a witness, identified as 44-year-old Joy Korey.
Mustafa then drove to 28th Street in the area and forced Caine out of the vehicle. Caine went and knocked on doors until he received a phone to contact police.
Police located the stolen vehicle at a traffic stop nearby. They took Mustafa and Korey into custody. Mustafa has since been charged with kidnapping and carjacking by use of a firearm.
