Alexandria Police are investigating a violent carjacking that occurred on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 14, in the 300 block of Euille Street in Old Town.
The victim, who was interviewed by police at the hospital with a non-life-threatening head wound, told police that he was approached by three men as he parked his car near his home, according to a search warrant affidavit. The men asked the victim for a ride, and he told them that he was not an Uber driver. One of the men then started hitting the back of the victim’s 2016 blue Honda CR-V and the victim stayed in the car. The suspects then walked away in the direction of Royal Street.
The victim left the car when he felt safe, but was approached by the same men, who now asked for his phone. He refused and said that he was using it. That was the last thing the victim remembered, he told police, as he woke up and found that his phone and car were stolen and that he had a bump on his head.
It was not clear if the victim was punched or hit with an object, according to the affidavit.
The Alexandria Police Department did not return calls for comment on the incident.
