Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A vehicle allegedly stolen at gunpoint from a Paradise Hills garage was later found abandoned and overturned on a nearby freeway off-ramp, a police officer said Sunday.

Two men working in a garage in the 5500 block of Potomac Street near Rachael Avenue were approached by three men in hooded sweatshirts, who threatened them with a handgun, at about 9:45 p.m. Saturday, San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.

The suspects took one of the victims' keys and drove off in his 1998 Chevy, Stafford said.

Stafford said California Highway Patrol officers found the vehicle unoccupied and overturned on the off-ramp from Interstate 805 to 43rd Street.
