MATTHEWS – A man walked over to a Matthews patrol officer at 3:30 a.m. May 4 saying his car was stolen at gunpoint.
The victim was sitting at the red light from the exit ramp of the I-485 outer loop to East John Street. He told police that a white man got out of the passenger side of a white pickup truck behind him, pointed a gun at him from his driver’s side window and demanded the victim get out of the car.
After the victim got out, the suspect drove the stolen vehicle through the light across East John Street and back onto the I-485 outer loop with the truck following behind.
The victim’s vehicle is a brown 2005 Jeep Liberty with a North Carolina registration plate number of PKJ-2427.
