Saturday at 8:44 a.m., North Precinct officers responded to the report of a carjacking behind the Kmart, located at 12350 Northeast Sandy Boulevard.
Officers arrived in the area and spoke to the victim, who told police that an unknown suspect stole his car at gunpoint approximately 30 minutes earlier and that the victim's friend was still inside the vehicle.
The victim told police that he and his friend "Gary" were sleeping in the vehicle behind Kmart when the suspect approached them on foot, armed with a handgun, and demanded money and property. The victim didn't have anything to give the suspect so the suspect began searching the car then drove away with "Gary" still inside.
The vehicle is described as a 2006 Honda CR-V, dark blue in color, bearing Washington license plates B-D-J-8-2-7-9. A stock photo of a similar vehicle is attached to this release.
The victim's friend that was still in the vehicle at the time of the carjacking is a man in his 70s named "Gary" wearing a red plaid shirt. "Gary" has medical issues that may require treatment when he is located.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, short beard, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants, armed with a handgun.
Anyone seeing this vehicle should not approach it and should immediately call 9-1-1. Anyone coming into contact with "Gary" should also call 9-1-1 so police may check his welfare.
