Clemson police arrest Seneca woman in carjacking incident



CLEMSON — Clemson police acted quickly to make an arrest after a carjacking at the Bilo on S.C. 93 on April 8.

That night, according to officers, a woman was returning to her home in Clemson after working in Greenville when she stopped at Bilo at around 10:25 p.m.

When she returned to her vehicle, a black female opened the passenger door, got in and told the victim to drive, according to a report.

Along with robbing the victim of cash, the suspect allegedly forced the victim to drive to a location in Pendleton, then told her to continue to drive. The victim told the suspect the vehicle needed gas, and when the victim stopped for gas in Pendleton, the suspect exited the vehicle, police said.

The victim then locked her doors and sped away, leaving the suspect.

The victim reported the incident to the Clemson City Police Department, where officers quickly thought of a person of interest from previous dealings with the city.

The investigation continued, leading to the arrest of Nakesha Marquita Holden, 29, of Seneca.

Holden was charged with carjacking.
