A Conway man says he was carjacked at gunpoint Tuesday afternoon while at a friend’s house in the 700 block of First Avenue.
The victim, 34, said he arrived at his friend’s residence after picking up groceries for her at Kroger. The victim said he took the groceries inside to his friend, and noticed a man in his vehicle as he was exiting the residence.
The victim, who later told police he knew the man from jail, said he opened the door of his car to ask the man, identified as a 38-year-old Conway resident in the police report, to exit the vehicle. The victim said the man then produced a “large, black revolver” and pointed it at him.
The victim said he backed away from the vehicle, and the man left in the vehicle, eastbound. The vehicle is listed as a blue 2005 Nissan Altima and valued at $8,000 in the police report. The victim stated the vehicle also had 20-inch rims and tinted windows.
The victim told police he then entered the man’s vehicle, which was left at the residence, and drove around the block to search.
Police said the victim described the man as a bald black male with a goatee, wearing blue shorts, and a blue and white tank top.
Officers said the victim left the scene before providing police with a voluntary statement.
