An 81-year-old man from Cape May County was carjacked as he and his wife were grocery shopping at Shop Rite in Rio Grande Tuesday evening.
According to a press release from the Middle Township Police Department, the victim was waiting for his wife in the passenger seat of their running vehicle when a clean-cut Hispanic male forced himself into the driver's seat and demanded that the older man exit immediately. He refused initially.
The victim told police that the carjacker threatened him with a weapon, but did not show one.
After refusing to abandon the vehicle, the assailant reportedly sped-off in the car with the victim still inside. Police say that it was some sort of physical altercation which led to the victim being pushed from his car. The car was later located in Trenton.
Anyone that may have witnessed anything about this incident is encouraged to reach out to the Middle Township Police Department at 609-465-8700.
