Police Report: October 15
4200 block of Russell Avenue: At about 10 am officers responded for an attempted carjacking/stolen vehicle. When the officers arrived the victim told them that he was approached by two black males in their early twenties who stated that they had a gun and wanted his car. At that time neither of the suspects displayed a weapon. The victim responded by telling them that he too had a gun. He reached into the trunk of his car, grabbed several bottles of water and proceeded to throw them at the two suspects. At this point both suspects gave up on the confrontation and fled the scene. The victim went into his apartment building and once inside realized that he’d dropped his car keys during the altercation. He went back to the parking lot and discovered that his car had been stolen.
