TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Two Tallahassee men and a juvenile have been arrested, accused of carjacking a victim at gunpoint and using the same stolen car to rob a pizza delivery driver.

Elijah Martaz Passmore, 27, and a juvenile were arrested for carjacking a victim on Oct. 1. Tamylon Williams, 22, and Passmore were both charged for the armed robbery of a pizza delivery driver. 

According to court documents, the incident happened at the intersection of Doolittle Drive and Jackson Bluff Road on Oct. 1.

The carjacking victim said that he was sitting in his parked, running silver Nissan Maxima when one person approached him on the driver's side and the other on the passenger side.

The first suspect pulled out a gun and told the victim to give him money, and while the victim attempted to comply by opening the driver's door, the suspect put a handgun to the victim's head.

The victim handed over his wallet and cellphone, court documents said. The victim told police he noticed that the second suspect was also pointing a handgun at him. Obeying the first suspect's commands, the victim got out of his car, and the two suspects drove it away.

On Oct. 5, police responded to an armed robbery at the Meadows apartment complex on Roberts Avenue.

A Pizza Hut delivery driver reported that he was trying to make a delivery when a gray Nissan Maxima drove toward his vehicle, almost hitting him. The driver of the Maxima got out of the car, pointed a gun at the victim's head and demanded money.

The suspect then took the victim's wallet and drove off. Documents say the victim managed to get the license plate of the vehicle, which matched the license plate of car stolen a few days earlier.  

On Oct. 19, police were dispatched to Professional Parking Services on Lake Bradford Road, after a tow truck driver determined that the car he was towing from the Meadows apartment complex was stolen.

The tow truck driver told police that the person who came out to the improperly parked car when he was getting ready to tow it didn't seem overly concerned about losing the car and only wanted to get some items out of it. The tow truck driver took a picture of the man and an investigator identified the person to be Williams.

Through further investigation, police identified Passmore, Williams, and the juvenile as the suspects in the crimes.

Passmore was arrested by Tallahassee Police for carjacking with a firearm and robbery with a firearm and booked into the Leon County Detention Center on Tuesday. He remained there on a $50,000 bond Wednesday.

Williams was arrested Oct. 20 for armed robbery with a firearm and remained in jail on Wednesday on $30,000 bond. He has not been charged in the armed carjacking. 

The juvenile was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center.
