SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A would-be carjacker was behind bars Friday accused of trying to forcible remove a man from his SUV at a gas station in Lincoln Park, police said.
The carjacking attempt in the 4700 block of Imperial Avenue was reported shortly before 10:30 p.m. Thursday, according to San Diego police Sgt. J.J. Salinas.
The victim told officers he was standing outside his Nissan Pathfinder, pumping gas, when another man in his late 20s walked up and said, "Give me your car." The victim then got into his vehicle and the other man opened the driver's door and tried unsuccessfully to pull the victim out of his vehicle, Salinas said.
The Pathfinder owner drove away and called police.
The would-be carjacker fled on foot, Salinas said, noting that officers arrested him in the area a short time later. His name was not immediately released.
People make the mistake all the time, but in at least one part of California, it's no longer wrong to say "funner."
