Miami Twp. police are seeking help in finding a car stolen at gunpoint from its owner outside the Dayton Mall this past weekend.
The carjacking occurred about 1:40 p.m. Saturday when a man approached an Englewood woman in the mall’s north parking outside of Macy’s and pulled a handgun on her, according to police.
The car is a four-door, 2012 Buick Regal with black with chrome wheels, tinted windows and a sunroof, police said.
The Ohio license plate number is GQA 6783. Anyone who sees this car is asked to call Miami Twp. police immediately at 937-225-4357.
Miami Twp. Police Department Public Information Officer Pat McCoy said recovery of the car – even if it is abandoned – may be important in arresting the thief.
Carjackings “are quite solvable if we get some evidence,” he said.
The victim was shaken up about the crime but appeared to be uninjured after witnesses said the suspect sought to force her into the cars.
The man who took car was seen speeding out of the parking lot and headed down Ohio 725, according to one 911 caller.
Another 911 caller from Jefferson Twp. said he later saw the car speeding up Interstate 75 and going west on U.S. 35 after apparently having fled police.
