SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A Savannah man was found guilty on Friday on armed robbery and other charges in connection with the July 2011 carjacking of a Savannah Tech student.

Marquis Isadore Kizer, 24, was convicted of one count of attempted armed robbery, one count of motor vehicle hijacking and one count of obstruction.

On July 28, 2011, Kizer, a Savannah Tech student, asked another student for a ride to Frazier Homes. When they got to Frazier Homes, Kizer brandished a gun and robbed the student of their car at gunpoint, according to the Chatham County District Attorney's Office.

Kizer ordered the student to surrender their cell phone, but the victim ran from the car and Kizer drove away, according to the Chatham County District Attorney's Office.

Kizer was taken into custody a few hours after crashing the car into a home at 59th and Crane streets in Savannah.

He faces up to 31 years in prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
