Police: Man arrested for series of carjackings

DeKalb County deputies have arrested a man they say is responsible for a series of carjackings.

Investigators say 30-year-old Azoumana Diarra hijacked three different vehicles in Clarkston back in August.

Officials told FOX 5 Diarra assaulted one of the drivers and then ran away from police.

According to warrants, Diarra had a minor with him while he committed the crimes.

Deputies arrested Diarra on Monday in Stone Mountain after a short chase.

He's being held in DeKalb County Jail on a number of charges.
