Three men carjacked a vehicle at a service station in Garden Grove early Monday morning, two of them beating the driver.
According to Detective Sgt. Mark Lord, the incident took place at the Union 76 station at 12512 Knott St., near Lampson Avenue, around 5 a.m.
The victim was pumping gasoline into his vehicle when he was approached by a male suspect, thus distracting him. Another suspect took the opportunity to enter the victim’s car while the third suspect stood at the hood of the vehicle, according to police.
Then, the first suspect began punching the victim, who attempted to fight back. The third suspect then joined in the attack on the motorist. All three suspects left the scene in the victim’s car, which was eventually recovered in Westminster.
The suspects are described as:
- a male Black in his 20s, 5-foot-8 inches to 6 feet tall, wearing a white puffy jacket and red pants;
- a male Black in his 20s, 5-foot-6 inches tall, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a white design and light-colored pants;
- a male Black in his 20s, 5-foot-6 inches tall, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and light-colored pants.
