BERWICK -- A man is locked up in Columbia County on a slew of charges after he went on an overnight carjacking spree.

Berwick Police finally nabbed Noah Bomboy this morning after he was allegedly involved in three carjackings just twelve hours.

“I'm very sorry to the victims.” Noah Bomboy apologized as he was taken by police to his arraignment.

He was charged with numerous offenses for an alleged overnight crime spree, including kidnapping and aggravated assault.

Berwick Police said officers on the ground and in the air were in hot pursuit of Bomboy after three carjackings took place in just 12 hours.

Police said it all began around 9:30 p.m. Thursday when Bomboy carjacked two women at knife point in the CVS parking lot.

He allegedly forced them to drive to ATM`s withdrawing money when…

“There was a lull in the action, the one victim fled from the car which then made the suspect fled from the vehicle,” said Berwick Police Chief Ken Strish.

Then around 4:30 Friday morning, police said Bomboy was in the YMCA parking lot and tried to carjack an employee who had showed up for work.

The victim fought back, and Bomboy slashed him with his knife then took off.

Then around 9:45 a.m., police said Bomboy carjacked a woman at a Weis market, also at knife-point, then forced her to withdraw money at area ATM`s and used her debit card at three stores in Luzerne County.

In Salem Township police said Bomboy got out of her car, went to a house owned by Derrick Sharpe and asked to use his bathroom.

That`s when police came knocking and caught Bomboy as he tried to run through Sharpe's yard.

“I guess they said he had a weapon and involved in some kind of altercation and robbery and stuff and everything which blew my mind. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it,” said Bomboy.

Bomboy was also charged with burglary for allegedly stealing nearly $5,000 worth of jewelry from a home in Berwick earlier this month.

Bomboy is locked up on more than $2 million bail.

He has a preliminary hearing set for October 29.
