JOHNSON CITY, NY – A Binghamton man is accused of a carjacking in the Oakdale Mall parking lot following an unsuccessful attempt outside of Wegman’s.
Johnson City Police arrested 26 year-old Brandon Hamilton yesterday afternoon after Vestal Police allegedly found him with the stolen vehicle along Underwood Road in Vestal.
JC Police say Hamilton initially tried to steal a vehicle from a male driver in the Wegman’s parking lot.
When he failed at that carjacking, Hamilton allegedly ran across Harry L Drive to the mall where he pulled a female driver from her car, pepper sprayed her and that took off in the vehicle.
Hamilton is charged with 2 counts of robbery.
