Update: Clinton PD has pending charges against this guy: auto theft, possession of a stolen auto, and auto burglary. He is not going anywhere.
Is (alleged) New Stage Theatre carjacker and attempted cop killer Suava Blair going home? A Hinds County grand jury indicted him on December 10 for carjacking, attempted aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, and armed robbery.
The Ridgewood Road resident went on a crime spree last October. An October 10 JPD press release states:
On Friday, October 2, 2015 at approx. 1720 hours, Jackson Police officers responded to New Stage Theater at 1100 Carlisle St. regarding a carjacking. The victim was approached by two suspects, one armed with a handgun. The suspects took a white in color Toyota Camry from the victim and fled the scene.
On Friday, October 9, 2015 at approx. 2129 hours, Jackson Police officers responded to the area of Jefferson St. near Morningside St. regarding a armed robbery of an individual. The victim was approached by a suspect armed with a handgun demanding belongings. The suspect robbed the victim for several belongings and fled the scene in a white Toyota Camry matching the description of the carjacked vehicle.
On Friday, October 9, 2015 at approx. 2245 hours, Jackson Police officers observed a white in color Toyota Camry in the 600 block of North St. The vehicle matched the description of the carjacked vehicle. Officers later observed a subject matching the description of the robbery suspect attempting to get into the vehicle. As officers approached the vehicle, the suspect positioned the vehicle towards one of the officers an attempted to run the officer over by using the vehicle as a weapon. In fear of their safety and the safety of others, officers discharged their duty weapons striking the vehicle. The suspect was able to elude the officers and later went to River Oaks Hospital for medical treatment for a gunshot wound he sustained to the foot. He was treated, released and later taken into custody. He's identified as Suava Blair, 18 yoa. None of the officers involved were injured during this incident.
However, Blair is apparently bragging on Facebook that he is coming home soon on house arrest.
