The woman was able to rescue her dog before the man drove off with her car.
The Ormond Beach Police Department is looking for a man in a camo hat who carjacked a woman's 2011 Lincoln MKS at Love's Truck Stop Tuesday afternoon.
According to the victim, an unknown white male approached her around 1:30 p.m. and demanded her keys. He then forcefully took the keys and entered her car, only to realize that he was unfamiliar with the push start ignition.
The suspect demanded that the victim help him start the car and told her he had a firearm. The victim was able to remove her dog from the vehicle before the suspect figured out how to start the car.
OBPD believes the suspect last went north on North U.S. 1 because the victim’s cell phone was recovered north of the crime scene.
The suspect is described as a white male between the ages of 35-40, 6-feet tall, approximately 170 pounds with a slender build. He was last seen wearing tan clothing and a camo hat. The stolen vehicle is a 2011 Lincoln MKS, Ohio Tag #GVK6638, white in color with black rain guards above the windows and black mud flaps.
