Salisbury woman’s vehicle carjacked in her driveway on Miller Street
SALISBURY — A woman’s vehicle was carjacked a gunpoint while she was sitting inside it in her East Miller Street driveway, according to the Salisbury Police Department.
The 60-year-old woman told police she was in her 2012 Subaru Forester about 6:30 p.m. Monday when a man opened her front passenger door, pointed a gun at her and told her to get out. The woman grabbed her purse.
The gunman told the woman to leave the keys in the vehicle. He drove away headed toward North Main Street.
The woman was able to give only a general description of the man. No arrest has been made.
Police say the car has since been recovered.
Police officials caution motorists against sitting in their vehicles.
Detective Russ DeSantis said often people are listening to the radio or doing something else and are not observant about their surroundings.
“Don’t linger in your vehicles,” DeSantis said.
He said motorists should keep their doors locked, even if they are sitting in their own driveway.
He said a driver coming home who sees someone suspicious should circle the block until the person leaves.
Anyone with information about Monday’s carjacking is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan CrimeStoppers at 866-639-5245.
