SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A carjacker took a silver-colored two-door Hyundai from a man who pulled over in Pacific Beach to eat an In-N-Out burger Saturday, police said.
The stolen car bears the license 5JRW856, San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.
The suspect acted like he had a gun when he approached the victim in the 2900 block of Damon Street about 12:30 a.m., he said. The victim got out of the car and realized the suspect was carrying hammer about the time the carjacker got in and drove off, Stafford said.
The suspect drove east, picked up a man carrying a guitar and disappeared, he said.
Anyone who has seen the car was asked to call Crime Stoppers (888) 540-8477.
