18-year-old Noreaga Carter was charged with aggravated assault, evading arrest, and two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon after he forcibly stopped a car with an AK-47 and pointed the weapon at an undercover cop.
On August 12th, Officer L. Coleman was conducting an undercover operation in the area of 286 Decatur St. when she witnessed Noreaga Carter walk into the street using an AK-47 to forcibly stop a vehicle. When the vehicle came to a halt, Carter entered the car through the front passenger side door. Shortly after, another individual entered the street from the porch of 286 Decatur with an AR-15 and got into the same car. As the car started to drive away, Carter raised the weapon and pointed it at the undercover officer.
When the other individual entered the suspicious vehicle, Officer L. Coleman called for backup. The vehicle drove around the apartments of that location. When backup arrived, Carter and his partner bailed out of the car behind 286 Decatur and started to flee. After a brief foot chase, Carter was captured but the other individual got away. The AK-47 and an AR-15 were recovered behind the building where they bailed. The AR-15 was believed to be stolen through a search of the NCIC. Carter was transported to the Felony Response Bureau and refused to talk.
Noreaga Carter was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, evading arrest, and two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon. His bond was set at $25,000.
