Police: Car Stolen at Gunpoint Outside Duke Street Giant

A person had their vehicle and phone stolen in a morning carjacking on Sunday outside Giant on Duke Street.

According to Amanda Paga, Public Information Officer for the Alexandria Police Department, the carjacking took place on Sunday around 7 a.m. on the 3000 block of Duke Street, where Giant is located.

Paga said the victim was loading groceries when they were approached by two suspects who brandished handguns. They took the victim’s phone and stole the vehicle.

The carjacking took place just a few blocks away from the Alexandria Police Department headquarters. There have been several carjackings throughout Alexandria over the last few months.

Criminal activity has increased in 2020, with vehicle thefts in particular increasing.

Paga said no description of the suspects is available at this time.
