Man Arrested After Trying to Carjack a Lake Tahoe Firefighter

A South Tahoe man has been arrested for attempted carjacking and kidnapping. He tried to carjack a Lake Tahoe Firefighter, who says the man stepped in front of his vehicle on Emerald Bay Road Tuesday night. He then tried to get in on the passenger side door, where the victim’s child was. The carjacker then fought with the driver, jumped in the drivers seat and tried to drive off with the child in the vehicle. The firefighter pulled the man out , and the suspect ran off. A photo he snapped was shared on social media, and later that night, a business owner identified an ex-employee, 27-year-old Jacob Lewis.
