No one was injured during a reported carjacking Monday at the 2800 block of North Main Street.
The carjacking took place at about 8:30 p.m. when a man and his wife — both age 21 — were getting into their Chevy Silverado when a male with a gun threatened the husband and demanded the keys to the vehicle, according to Todd Wildermuth, public information officer with the Roswell Police Department.
Wildermuth said the man then stole the vehicle, driving it east on East Mescalero Road. A short time later, the vehicle was reported to have crashed into an electrical pole near Wilshire Boulevard and Grand Avenue, not far from where the carjacking had occurred.
The suspect was not in the vehicle when police arrived, and officers could not find him, despite an hours-long search of the area.
A description of the suspect was later provided by the male victim. The suspect was described as a 20-year-old male about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and about 140 pounds, with tattoos on his neck and possibly face. The suspect also reportedly was dressed in all black clothing, Wildermuth stated.
