SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man was in custody in San Diego Friday, accused of carjacking three women at gunpoint with help from an accomplice who remained at large Friday morning, police said.

The carjacking in the 5100 block of Naranja Street in the Valencia Park neighborhood was reported at 10:21 p.m. on Thursday, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

Two men in their 20s approached a woman in her 50s and her two female companions, who were in a Toyota, according to Delimitros.
