She explained that a stranger had approached her, indicated he had a gun, and demanded her car. Officers immediately began searching the city for the car.
Just before 1am, a patrol sergeant located the stolen vehicle near Francis Avenue and N Nevada Street in northeast Spokane.
Authorities detained the driver who was later identified as 31-year-old Marcus Goodman.
‘As officers investigated Goodman’s activity they became aware Goodman had been released from jail on an unrelated felony charge at 10:08PM,’ a statement from the police department reads.
Over the span of 20 minutes, Goodman had traveled the roughly 1.5 miles from jail to the incident location in Browne’s Addition and robbed the teenager, police said.
Goodman, a convicted felon, was booked back into Spokane County Jail for the felony charge of second-degree robbery.
He is being held on $15,000 bond.
It’s unclear what Goodman was previously convicted for and a DailyMail.com request for comment to the Spokane Police Department was not immediately returned Monday morning.
