A woman’s vehicle was carjacked as she parked in her driveway at about midnight Wednesday in a housing development near Hagerstown, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies responded around midnight to the 17900 block of Golf View Drive near the intersection of Downsville Pike and Oak Ridge Drive for a report of a carjacking, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
An investigation determined that the victim was approached by a man after she parked her 2006 silver Kia Sedona in the driveway of her residence. The man forced the victim from her vehicle and drove away, according to the release.
Police said that before the man approached the victim, he was seen with a woman near a vehicle that appeared to be broken down on Fairway Lane. That vehicle was no longer at the scene when deputies arrived.
The alleged carjacker was described as a black male in his mid- to late-20s with black hair and brown eyes.
He was about 5-feet, 8-inches to 5-feet, 10-inches tall and weighed about 180 pounds.
Deputy 1st Class Carly Hose said the man was wearing a hooded sweatshirt.
The Kia’s registration is 8FRS81, deputies said.
