A thief forced his way into a slow-moving car in an O’Farrell-area neighborhood Tuesday, announced that he had a gun, ordered the driver to get out and stole the vehicle, authorities reported.
The victim was driving at low speed in the 6300 block of Sullivan Avenue at about 8 a.m., looking for an address, when a bald, heavyset man in blue jeans and a white T-shirt jumped into his Honda Civic, according to San Diego police.
After the carjacker claimed to have a gun, the motorist stopped and got out, and the perpetrator drove off in the white 2012 Civic, California license plate number 6WNR984, Officer Dino Delimitros said.
No injuries were reported.
