SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police were searching Thursday for a carjacking suspect who conspired with his female companion to trick a motorist.
The woman, who was later arrested, asked the motorist for a ride in the 4700 block of Wilson Avenue about 11:25 p.m. Wednesday, according to San Diego police officer Dino Delimitros.
As she got in, her male companion also got in, Delimitros said.
The motorist was then instructed to let the male suspect out in an alley, where the carjacker got the victim in a choke hold and took his vehicle, according to the officer.
The woman was arrested shortly thereafter, Delimitros said, without elaboration.
Police described the suspect as a 30-year-old, 6-foot-3-inch-tall black male, with a shaved head and muscular build. He was last seen driving away in the victim's new black, four-door Nissan Sentra, which had paper plates, Delimitros said.
