Decatur Police responded to a carjacking in the 100 block of Mimosa Place on Thursday, July 22, at about 5:49 p.m. An adult woman parked her white 2021 Jeep Cherokee with Georgia tag CPX8949 and exited the vehicle. A black, older model Volkswagen Jetta pulled behind the victim’s vehicle, according to a Facebook post from the police department.

The Volkswagen was occupied by three men. One of the suspects pointed a gray handgun at the victim and demanded her keys. The victim complied and the men left the area driving both the Jeep and Volkswagen. Sgt.
