MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The second suspect in a carjacking reported at an Ocean Boulevard hotel over the summer is now facing charges for injuring a man on vacation and taking off with his car, according to Myrtle Beach Police.

Myrtle Beach Police served a warrant to 19-year-old Shaquille Oneal Mcarthur on the morning of Thursday, Nov. 15 for carjacking.

On Thursday, Dec. 27, police served a warrant to the second suspect, 18-year-old Christopher Green, for carjacking while in custody for another crime.

Incident reports show those charges are in connection to a crime reported on June 28 on the 3000 block of North Ocean Boulevard where a Canadian couple was enjoying their Myrtle Beach vacation.

The report states the male victim was staying at the Jamaican Resort with his wife, and walked out to his car around 11 p.m. to retrieve something from the trunk.

When he did, he noticed three black males in the parking lot. Those men, the victim claims, later approached him and choked him from behind.

Slipping into unconsciousness, the man awoke to find his keys missing from his hand, and his car was gone.

The man received a few lacerations from his fall to the ground but did not wish to be treated by EMS. The couple told police that the value of the items inside their car at the time it was stolen totaled approximately $10,321.

The report does not detail if the Dodge Caravan with Quebec license plates they drove to their vacation destination was ever found.

In addition to Shaquille Mcarthur and Christopher Green, police are looking for one more suspect, described as a black male in his late teens from the Tabor City/Whiteville area.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Myrtle Beach Police as soon as possible.
