Springs police are searching for a man they say carjacked a couple at gunpoint in their neighborhood overnight.

The carjacking happened at 8th st. and Oxford near Cheyenne Blvd. on the westside of Colorado Springs.

The couple says they were approached by a hispanic man around 40 years old who was wearing dark clothing. He used a gun to order them out of their 2006 black Saab and the suspect climbed in and drove away.

After a couple hours of investigation police say they managed to find the car a few blocks away on Pine Avenue. They tell 11 News the car looks like it was involved in an accident.

No arrests have been made in the case. Police say this is an odd case of circumstances. They are still investigating to find out exactly what happened.

      If that's the case, why did he park the car a couple of blocks away, and instead, get out of the state. No, it sounds like an accident was involved, and someone is trying to get out of being blamed for it.

    I wonder if this is related to the wrecked Caddy on Oxford Lane that's been parked on the street for several days where the street is narrow and winds around where it's hard to see because of the landscaping in the homes yards.
