Attempted carjacking of undercover detective

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two men in their 20s attempted to carjack a vehicle being driven by an off-duty gang detective in San Diego's Colina Del Sol neighborhood, police said Wednesday.

The San Diego police detective, whose name was not released, was stopped at a stop sign at 48th Street and Polk Avenue around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday when the suspects approached, said San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

When one suspect reached for his waistband and said, "This is a carjacking," the detective identified himself and drew his service weapon, causing the two men to flee, Delimitros said.

The detective pursued the suspects on foot, but lost them in the 4800 block of 48th Street, Delimitros said.
