SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 57-year-old man was punched in the face Saturday by a would-be carjacker, but the victim and an intrepid bystander overpowered the bandit and held him or officers, police said.
The carjacking attempt occurred at 2:30 p.m., when the victim was sitting in his car in a parking lot in the 6900 block of Linda Vista Road and a man in his 20s in dark clothing ran up and began punching him through the open driver's side window, said San Diego police Officer Frank Cali. He then pulled the man from the car and took his keys.
The bandit attempted to start the vehicle, but a bystander showed up and joined the victim in subduing the suspect, holding him until police arrived, Cali said.
