Man charged in carjacking with mom in tow

Charlestown man threatens mother, forces her behind wheel



The girlfriend then left the area, according to the report.

The mother said that her son continued to yell and scream and was becoming irate. She told police that she was in fear of what he might do and that he would make good on his threats. Buba then demanded that his mother follow his girlfriend in the vehicle, but they lost the girlfriend on the roadway, according to the report. The two then went to a Chase bank because Buba thought his girlfriend may have gone there to close her account.

The woman was found at the bank, and Marcus exited the Malibu.

“[The mother] advised that she then drove off and parked at a Rite Aid in an attempt to see if the police were going to arrive and take him to jail,” according to the report.

She then received a phone call from Buba to pick him up from Circle K. The mother went to the business, and Buba got into the vehicle.

“[The mother] advised that was when Marcus told her to get out of the car and that he had a knife,” according to the police report.

She told police that after refusing to exit the vehicle, her son removed the keys and again demanded she get out of the car.

“[The mother] advised that she was afraid that if she didn’t try to stay with [Buba], he would have taken the car and went to do harm to [his girlfriend],” police reported.

Buba returned the keys to his mother after she agreed to take him to a relative’s home.

She told police that she convinced her son to let her stop for cigarettes at Circle K and was hoping that police would show up. She told officers that at one point Buba said to her, “You better not be setting me up,” according to the police report. Police then arrived at the location and took Buba into custody. No weapons were found in the vehicle or in Buba’s possession.
