Bristol – Higher Court For Carjacking-Assault Case
An attempted carjacking and assault case was just assigned to a higher court in Bristol.
The case stems from an October 2 incident where two female motorists were assaulted while inside their car. The attempted carjacking occurred at McDonald’s on North Main Street. 37-year-old Vincente Rodriguez attacked the two victims with the intention of stealing their vehicle. He failed and immediately fled the scene. Rodriguez was eventually apprehended by pursuing officers on Laurel Street while attempting to carjack another vehicle. The two victims sustained injuries but refused to be taken to the hospital. Rodriguez is currently facing several charges related to the incident. His next court date is on October 31.
