The victim was reportedly approached by a man as he exited his car and walked over to the restaurant to place his order. The suspect was walking North on Broad Street as he approached the victim. He walked right past the victim before entering the victim’s car, before proceeding to hide in the back seat of the victim’s car, while the victim was busy placing his order.

When the victim returned to the car, the suspect put a gun to the back of his head and demanded his keys. The police report said a brief struggle ensued between the two, before the victim eventually decided to exit the vehicle. The suspect fled with the victim’s car.
