MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis police have arrested a man wanted for carjacking a woman at a Memphis gas station.

Ray Charles Burnes, 27, was arrested last week for carjacking a woman at the Smart Mart on South Highland on March 6.  Early that morning, Burnes allegedly stole a 2002 Toyota Camry from a woman at the Smart Mart while she was outside pumping gas.

Tuesday, police charged Burnes with carjacking and well as evading arrest.

The Camry was later used in a series of robberies, including a March 6 attack where the suspect struck a victim with the car as she walked near Park and Highland before stealing her purse.

Police later recovered the Camry.

Memphis police said Tuesday the investigation into the individual robberies is still ongoing, and additional charges are expected.
