Woman jailed in connection with Duarte carjacking

DUARTE — A woman was arrested on suspicion of carjacking Sunday after allegedly punching another woman in the face and stealing her car with the help of a male accomplice, authorities said.
Her name was not immediately available, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff Walker said.
The incident occurred about 7:15 p.m. at the Duarte Liquor Store, 1302 Duarte Road, the sergeant said.
A woman was approached by the female suspect and punched in the face, Walker said.
She and an accomplice, a man, then drove away in the woman’s Nissan Pathfinder SUV, he said.
The SUV crashed and overturned about half a mile east of the liquor store at Duarte Road and Highland Avenue, Walker said.
As deputies were investigating the crash, the apparent victim approached officials and pointed out the female suspect driving away in another car, he said.
The car was pulled over and the woman was arrested without further incident, Walker said. Three other men inside the car with her were not believed to be involved in the carjacking.
The woman who allegedly had her car stolen was hospitalized with a possibly broken nose, the sergeant added.
The male suspect remained at large, he said.
