Carjacking reported in downtown Turlock
TPD crime scene

The Turlock Police Department is investigating a carjacking that occurred in downtown Turlock Thursday night.

No one was injured in the incident, though the suspect was armed with a handgun, said Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Steve Rodrigues.

The carjacking was reported shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday in the 300 block of E. Main Street.

The two victims were sitting in their parked car when they were approached by a black man possibly in his 30s. The man pulled out a handgun and demanded the two occupants get out of the car. The two complied and the suspect fled in the vehicle, Rodrigues said.

The vehicle was located about an hour later, but the suspect was not seen.

The suspect is estimated to be around 6 feet tall and 180 pounds.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Turlock Police Officer Joe Dusel at 668-5550 ext. 6682.
