Lawrence Police Release Photo of Carjacking Suspect

acme carjackThe Lawrence Police Department has released surveillance photos of the suspect who allegedly threw a 78-year-old woman from her car Monday afternoon and stole her vehicle.

At about 3:30 p.m. on Monday, the victim was attacked and carjacked immediately after loading some groceries into her 2013 silver Kia Rio. She was approached by the suspect after she was seated in her vehicle. Immediately upon being seated, the suspect leaned in and demanded her keys. Upon refusing to give the suspect her keys, the suspect grabbed her by both wrists and threw her from the vehicle, causing minor injuries to both of her hands, wrists and knee. The suspect then entered her vehicle and fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The incident happened in the Acme parking lot at the Lawrence Shopping Center. Responding officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

Police said the suspect is described as a black male, 6’0” to 6’1”, with a large build, and weighs about 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing dark pants and a dark sweat shirt.

Video surveillance footage was obtained during the investigation. Anyone with information regarding the incident or the suspect is asked to call Lawrence Police Department Sergeant Joseph Lech at 609-896-1111 or jlech@lawrencetwp.com

    Thank goodness the woman was not seriously injured. No thanks to the despicable coward who assaulted her. Hopefully he will be spending a long time in prison.
