Sources within the Ventura Police Department have confirmed that officers are looking for a man who tried to carjack one vehicle and less than 30 minutes later, managed to run off with another.
Investigators say both incidents took place last Friday; during the first, which happened just before 11 p.m., a man walked up to his targeted victim as he was sitting in his car in a grocery store parking lot. He ordered the person in the vehicle get out of the car and hand over his keys.
That man, however, refused to comply. When the suspect pulled a gun, the victim screamed that he was being robbed and the suspect ran off.
About 20 minutes later that same man approached a woman who had just parked her car. The suspect walked up to her, stuck the barrel of the gun in her side and demanded she turn over her keys. She complied.
Although the car was returned to its owner within 24-hours, the suspect is still at large. Anyone who thinks they have information that could lead to his capture and arrest is asked to call the Ventura PD.
