AURORA, Colo. — Four people have been arrested in connection with an armed carjacking of two good Samaritans in Elbert County last weekend.

Lisa George, 55; Veronica Davila, 32; Andrew Hudson, 25; and Dorothy Greek, 29, were arrested and booked into the Elbert County Jail.

Around 1 a.m. Sunday, Greek was allegedly driving a Dodge Grand Caravan in the area of Colorado State Highway 86 and County Road 125 when she crashed, rolling the minivan. Davila and Hudson were apparently with Greek when the van crashed.

Shortly after the crash, two women in a 2006 silver Toyota RAV4 were passing by and stopped to see if they could offer assistance to the three people involved in the single-vehicle crash.

At that point, the two good Samaritans got out of their Rav4 and began speaking to the crash victims when Hudson allegedly pulled a gun, and the three suspects took off in the women's SUV, the sheriff's office said. The good Samaritans were not injured.

As investigators began working the case, they learned information as to who the male suspect was and where he had come from prior to the incident, according to the sheriff's office. Later that night, deputies arrested George, of Simla, on suspicion of attempting to influence a public servant.

On Monday, deputies arrived at an Aurora apartment complex near Sable Boulevard and East Jewell Avenue and arrested Davila and Hudson. During the arrest, Hudson was connected to another stolen vehicle, which deputies say he drove to the apartment complex in. He was also in possession of a stolen firearm, according to the sheriff's office.

On Wednesday, deputies recovered the stolen RAV4 parked at the Sable Landing Apartments in Aurora. They also arrested Greek at this location, the sheriff's office said.

Charges in the case, which include felony menacing, aggravated motor vehicle theft and robbery, are pending.
