Police Tuesday were searching for two men suspected of pistol-whipping and carjacking a man on a North Park street.
It happened around 9:45 p.m. Monday in the 2700 block of University Avenue, San Diego Police Officer John Buttle said.
A 20-year-old man was driving his 2008 Toyota Yaris, with another man in the front passenger seat, on University Avenue when a newer model white Jeep pulled in front of him and stopped, Buttle said. Two men then got out of the Jeep and approached the Toyota.
One of the men pulled the Toyota driver out of his car and pistol-whipped him while the male passenger got out of the Toyota, Buttle said.
The second suspect then jumped into the driver’s seat of the Toyota and drove off, followed by the first suspect driving the Jeep, Buttle said.
The victim sustained a minor injury and refused medical treatment, Buttle said.
A short time later, officers located the Toyota unoccupied in the 3900 block of Landis Street, less than two miles from where the carjacking occurred, Buttle said.
A detailed description of the suspects was not immediately available.
