Carjacking Under Investigation


Police are investigating a reported carjacking in the Springs.

At 1:24 a.m. Thursday, police were called to the 1200 block of Bristol Avenue, where they talked with one of the victims of the carjacking. According to police, three people were driving east in a Ford Fusion on East Cheyenne Road when a Jeep Cherokee cut in front of them. Police say that when the victims pulled up to the corner of Aspen Avenue and Cheyenne, two men approached the car and threatened the occupants with a shotgun. One of the suspects yelled at the occupants to “get out of the car” and shattered a passenger window with the stock end of the gun. The three victims fled from the scene, while the suspects left in the victims’ vehicle.

The three victims were not injured in the carjacking. The suspects left the scene in a 2006 green Ford Fusion with Colorado license plates. Descriptions of the suspects have not been provided. Anyone with any information that could help with the investigation are asked to notify police, or to call Crimestoppers at 634-STOP.

    Yeah good job guys... Less information the better.... how about the license plate number seriously? There's quite a few green Ford fusions out there.

    Once again, the idiots who can't seem to do anything constructive for themselves believe it's okay to take what other people have.

    "The stock end up the fun?" Really? Proofreading works wonders; you should try it sometime.

    You might want to make a quick edit to the line "...stock end up the fun.'' Have a good day, all!
