JACKSON SQ.—A Brockton man is facing charges that he carjacked two people at gunpoint after asking to bum a cigarette on July 27 at Centre and Lamartine streets, according to the Boston Police Department (BPD).

Orlando Pizzaro, 34, is charged with armed carjacking, assault with intent to murder, unlawful gun possession and possession of a Class A drug with intent to distribute.

The victims reported that they were stopped at the intersection when Pizzaro allegedly walked up and asked for a cigarette, then pulled a gun and ordered them out of the car. When police officers later spotted the car in Hyde Park, Pizzaro allegedly pulled over and fled into a wooded area.
