SAVANNAH, GA (April 22, 2016): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Robbery Unit is investigating an armed robbery and carjacking that took place on April 21.
Just before 9 p.m., a male victim and his mother arrived near the intersection of 32nd and Live Oak Streets to purchase a scooter. When the victim got out of his vehicle to meet the unknown male, the suspect brandished a gun and demanded the victim’s belongings. A struggle between the two ensued and a shot was fired. The victim was able to run away unharmed.
As the victim’s mother waited for her son to make the purchase, a second suspect arrived at the window of her white Hyundai Azera with a gun and demanded she exit the vehicle. The victim complied and the suspect fled the scene with her vehicle. The vehicle has a Jamaican tag on the front of the car, a Jamaican flag around the rear view mirror, a Florida State sticker on the back and bears a Georgia Veterans tag.

During the incident he wore a camouflage hoodie and light in color pants that may have possibly been gray. The suspect who took the woman’s car is described as a black male of a medium complexion wearing tan shorts and a black shirt during the incident.
