(VIDEO) Carjacking suspect sprayed victim with unknown substance before swiping vehicle
DeKalb County Police are looking for two suspects accused of spraying a man with an unknown substance — possibly pepper spray — before stealing his car.
The incident occurred Sunday morning, July 7, at a Texaco near the big Kroger store on North Decatur Road.
According to the report, police responded to the call around 7:30 a.m. The victim said he pulled up to the pump and saw a white vehicle parked at an adjacent pump. He got out of his car, hooked his car up to the gas pump, and got back into his car.
A man was in the driver’s seat of the other vehicle and another man was in the right rear seat of the white vehicle. The victim told police he got out of his car to unhook the gas pump and close the gas cap when the man seated in the back seat of the other car sprang out of the door and sprayed him in the face with the substance. The suspect demanded his car keys, which the victim provided.
Both suspects fled the location with the victim’s 2018 Ford Fusion.
