Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police Monday were on the lookout for an apparently homeless man who carjacked a motorist in Southeast San Diego.

The carjacking in the 3000 block of Market Street was reported shortly after 4:30 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

The victim picked up the suspect to drive him to a local recycler to turn in his aluminum cans, Delimitros said, noting that when the suspect got in, he pulled out a knife and demanded the car keys.

The victim complied and the suspect drove away in a red 2002 Chevy Blazer with a black luggage rack on top and a California license plate No. 5MWX183, Delimitros said.

Police described the carjacker as a white man, 35-45 years old and about 6 feet 1 inches tall, last seen wearing a blue jacket and blue jeans.
