BEAUMONT (KYTX)– United States Attorney John M. Bales announced today that a Beaumont man has pled guilty to federal carjacking charges in the Eastern District of Texas.

Rogelio Arellano Torres, 19, of Beaumont, admitted to charges he car jacked a woman last year during a hearing before United States Judge Marcia Crone today in Beaumont.  Torres had been indicted on July 11, 2012 and charged with carjacking in a one count indictment. 
 
According to information presented in court, on June 24, 2012, Torres forced the woman at knifepoint into her vehicle in the parking lot of the Pappadeaux's Restaurant in Beaumont.  Torres then drove, with her captive, to a bank ATM where he demanded the victim withdraw money from her account.  After withdrawing the money, the woman was eventually forced from her vehicle and Torres fled with her car, purse and cell phone.   
 
Torres faces a term of up to 15 years in prison.  A sentencing date has not been set.
