MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Police in Mobile have arrested a 17-year-old they say was involved in a carjacking last month.

The Press-Register newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/xrVyvw ) that Bobby Grimes was arrested today at Blount High School. He is charged with first-degree robbery. Jail records showed he was being held without bail in Mobile County metro jail. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

Police spokesman Cpl. Christopher Levy says that the carjacking took place about 10:30 p.m. Dec. 23. Levy says a woman told police two men approached her and took her car after one pointed a gun.

Police say another man not suspected in the robbery was arrested Jan. 5 after being caught driving the car. An investigation led police to arrest Grimes. Police are trying to identify the second robber.
