    "The one that attacked the victim this morning was just released from prison two weeks ago for the same crime he just committed which was carjacking," said Miami-Dade Schools Police Sergeant Ivan Silva.

    He said Estevez was released from prison three weeks ago for trafficking cocaine.

    Medics rushed the woman to the hospital after the attack. She was released Friday afternoon and officials said she is expected to recover.

    Lopez is in jail charged with carjacking, battery and grand theft. Estevez, also behind bars, faces charges of grand theft and possession of marijuana.
