A Washington man is accused of carjacking a teen girl within 20 minutes of being released from jail, authorities say.
According to the Spokane Police Department, authorities released 31-year-old Marcus Goodman from jail on Saturday, stemming from an unrelated felony charge. At around 10:28 p.m. on the night Goodman was released, a teen victim called authorities and said a man pointed a gun at her and demanded that she give up her car.
Police said that after Goodman was released from jail, he went to the Browne’s Addition neighborhood around a mile away, where he carjacked the victim.
A little before 1 a.m. on February 14, authorities found Goodman and the stolen vehicle off of stolen vehicle Francis Ave. and N. Nevada St. in northeast Spokane.

He was quickly identified as the person who had robbed the victim a couple hours earlier,” Spokane PD said.
