ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two Albany teens have been arrested for a carjacking earlier this month where they pistol whipped and robbed an Albany man.

Eighteen year old Michael Lee Jones and his 17 year old cousin Audwin Jones are charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated assault.

Twenty-seven year old James Strother told police was driving on 6th Avenue when he stopped to let pedestrians cross. He says that's when both men, one with a gun, jumped into his car and ordered him to drive to an ATM.

Strother said he withdrew $75.00, and was hit in the face with the gun after he gave them the money.
