Carjacking ends at gunpoint


Four people, including the victim, were treated for injuries after a June 29 carjacking ended at gunpoint in Carmel.

Around 10:50 a.m., the Carmel Police Dept. responded to a report of a carjacking/auto theft in the area of 10025 Michigan Rd. The suspect, later identified as Joshua Allen Hill, a black male from Indianapolis, allegedly forcibly stole a 2001 Honda Accord from the victim who was identified as Ariana Ciglar from Zionsville.

After a short pursuit by police, Hill crashed the stolen car into another vehicle near 116th Street and Hoover Road, slightly injuring the mother and daughter inside who were treated at the scene by the Carmel Fire Dept.

Hill reportedly continued driving until he crashed again and then fled the scene on foot, running into the Crooked Stick Neighborhood. Hill then entered a home in the 1600 block of Prestwick Lane where he battered the female homeowner, according to police reports. The female homeowner later was transported to IU North Hospital for medical treatment.

Hill then stole a four-door Jeep Wrangler from the Prestwick residence and was later apprehended at gun point by Carmel Police Officers near the residence. He was taken to St.Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment of injuries suffered in the vehicle crashes, according to police.

The investigation is still on-going with numerous felony charges pending.
