Carjacker Was Trying To Rush Pregnant Girlfriend to Hospital
A 31-year-old Deltona man was arrested, accused of commandeering a car and forcing its driver out so he could rush his pregnant girlfriend to the hospital.
Robert Boudreaux was arrested in the hospital parking lot Sunday after a saga that began when his girlfriend’s car ran out of gas and the couple had walked several miles.
He is accused of armed carjacking, fleeing a law-enforcement officer and driving with a suspended license.
According to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, this is what happened:
The girlfriend’s car ran out of gas, and the couple walked several miles. The 22-year-old girlfriend then began to feel dehydrated and complained that she was bleeding.
Boudreaux picked her up and walked into the path of an oncoming Buick. The 20-year-old driver stopped and initially refused to take them to the hospital, but Boudreaux got angry and threatened to shoot him, so he let them both climb inside.
