Police released new video footage as they continued the search for a suspected carjacker after a woman reported in August she had been pulled from her car in the South End.

The new footage shows a man wearing a green shirt and jeans with a sweater over his head walking along the street. Police believe he is the man who allegedly stole a woman's car on Aug. 21, then set it on fire.

The woman told police she was parking her car in the area of Cumberland and Saint Botolphstreets around 9:30 a.m. when a man came up to her driver-side door and opened it, first attempting to push her in the car, then pulling her out when she resisted. She was able to flee the scene, police said.


Police later found her car about one-and-a-half miles away at 78 Peterborough Street, where it had been set on fire, according to the report.
