Woman Carjacked at Gunpoint in Elk Grove

A woman sitting in her car in the 9600 block of Bruceville Road was carjacked by an armed man, police say.

A 19-year-old woman was carjacked by an armed man Monday afternoon in Elk Grove, police say.

The victim was sitting in her car with the window rolled down around noon in the 9600 block of Bruceville Road, according to an Elk Grove Police Department crime log. 

An unknown man came up to the car and put his arm on the window so the woman couldn't roll it up, then showed her a handgun wrapped in cloth, police say.

The suspect pushed the victim into the driver's seat, drove a short distance until another car honked at him, then stopped and told the woman to get out of the car, the crime log states. The suspect also took the woman's cell phone before driving away, police say.

According to the crime log, the suspect is described as "a Hispanic male adult, 6-foot-1, 250 pounds, with brown eyes and long hair in a pony tail. He was wearing a blue short sleeve shirt, white collared T-shirt, blue denim pants and white shoes."

The victim's vehicle is a maroon 2002 Mitsubishi Galant, California license plate No. 5EEW575. The car's right rear is dented and the car has a "Baby on Board" sign in the rear window.

Anyone with information on the crime can call the department at (916) 627-3333 or report a tip online.

Elk Grove Veteran, go ahead and keep telling yourself that you are not racist. Please google ethnocentric racism. Do you really think that anything you have said has convinced me or anybody else here otherwise?

Although some of my spelling may lead you to believe otherwise, I do have an education. I am familiar with the term. I do not need to google it. It is unfortunate you have shown ongoing hatred toward me. Is that how you treat someone for making a guess as to someone's citizenship status? And then you label me? You don't know me, and you are wrong about me. Maybe I'll see you around, but I will no longer respond to someone who is so obviously blinded by their liberalism. You have turned a news commentary into a personal attack against someone you know nothing about. All you know is that my comment did not make you feel good. I'm not here to hurt anyone, just trying to give my point of view. Have a great day!

Elk Grove Veteran, that's hilarious. Expressing my opinion that you are an ethnocentric racist doesn't mean I have hatred. If anything, my intent is to inform and educate. If you don't want to hear it, then go ahead and believe whatever you want to believe. If you say people are expressing hatred everytime they don't agree with you, you're not going to get very far in this life. I'm totally fine with the fact that we don't agree with regard to views about Hispanics and illegals committing crimes. You think that most Hispanics who commit crimes are illegal. I don't think this is the case and I think that you are criminalizing Hispanics. There are plenty of hard working, law abiding people of Hispanic descent who are not citizens of this country but who are not breaking any civil laws and are not a menace to society. The continued presence of an illegal alien in the United States is not a crime unless the illegal alien has previously been deported and has again entered this country illegally. (State of Kansas versus Nicholas Martinez). I don't care what you think about me. You can call me whatever you want. And I stand by my aforementioned comments. If you don't want people responding to your comments, then think more carefully about what you post. You didn't hurt me Elk Grove Veteran. I'm not illegal or Hispanic. But I would imagine that your comment made a bunch of Hispanic people or illegal people feel like crap. Go ahead and make your peace with that.

I agree with the racist comment. I don't think he was an illegal alien because their only about 5'2" not 6'1"

I can, figuratively speaking, see a Native American chief sitting on a white horse at a point overlooking the City of Elk Grove and what it is becoming, with tears running down his cheecks. So sad.
