Armed thieves carry out predawn carjacking in Mira Mesa

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A pair of thieves threatened a motorist with a gun on a Mira Mesa roadside Wednesday, forced him out of his car and stole it, authorities reported.

The 55-year-old victim had just gotten into his 2014 BMW in the 10600 block of Camino Ruiz when the unidentified men ran up and tried to pull him out about 5:30 a.m. according to San Diego police.

When the owner of the vehicle resisted, one of the crooks pointed a handgun at him, Officer Sarah Foster said. The victim then handed over his keys and got out, and the carjackers jumped in and sped off.

No injuries were reported.
