Police: Woman pretending to be stranded motorist carjacked Good Samaritan
After flagging a man down for help, the woman allegedly pulled out a gun and carjacked him with the help of two other men.
Delaware State Police are looking for three people who allegedly carjacked a man in Claymont early yesterday morning.
Police said the victim, 38, was driving away from a Wawa convenience store parking lot at 1:15 a.m. when he saw a dark-colored Ford Crown Victoria on the shoulder of the road with its hazards on and a woman standing in front of it waving for help.
When he stopped to assist what he thought was a stranded motorist, the woman walked around to the driver's side window and leveled a gun at his head, police said.
A man, also armed, joined the woman and forced the victim from his silver 2006 BMW X3 and into the Crown Victoria, according to authorities. A second man then hopped into the BMW and sped away.
The female suspect drove the Crown Victoria to Wilmington with both the victim and one of the suspects in the backseat. There, investigators said, the two suspects forced the do-gooder out of the car at gunpoint and left him on the side of the road.
He ran to a local business and called state police.
Authorities are looking for a black woman between the ages of 20 and 30 and two black men between the ages of 20 and 30 – all of who are armed with handguns – plus the suspect's car, a dark-colored Ford Crown Victoria with dark tinted windows, and the victim's car, a four-door silver 2006 BMW X3 with a Delaware registration #PC166062.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Robbery Unit at Troop 2 at 302-834-2630 #, to call Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or to text a top to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
