Man arrested after attempted carjacking

Thursday, Littlefield Police officers responded to a call in the 900 block of West Fourth Street where a male subject, 25 year-old Ruben Garcia Lopez, was armed with a knife and was assaulting a female and trying to carjack her car.

Lopez confronted the victim on her property as she and her boyfriend were loading their car to go somewhere. The arrestee told her “this was his (expletive) car”. The arrestee then intentionally assaulted the victim’s boyfriend and her. Even though she was being assaulted; the woman was trying to get her kids out of the car.

A neighbor arrived at his home, saw the attack in progress, and armed himself with his permitted concealed handgun. He came to the aid of the victims and pointed his weapon at the attacker. The attacker verbally threatened the neighbor, but moved away from the victims and walked across the street.
