FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- A suspect accused of carjacking, assault and armed robbery in northern Arizona has been arrested in Nevada.

Coconino County Sheriff's officials say 32-year-old Renee Cadriel of San Antonio, Texas was arrested Monday in Las Vegas.

Cadriel allegedly was driving the car of a 60-year-old woman who reported it stolen April 9 at the Meteor Crater rest stop.

The woman was travelling from South Carolina to northern California when she stopped to use the rest room.

She told authorities that a man punched her in the face, took her keys and drove away in her vehicle.

Las Vegas police say Cadriel is being held on a $100,000 bond pending extradition to Arizona.

Coconino County Sheriff's officials say Cadriel is facing charges of assault, armed robbery and theft of means of transportation.
