CMPD Reports Uptown Car Jacking
The Charlotte Observer is reporting:
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say a mother and her children were carjacked Wednesday afternoon after visiting Discovery Place in Charlotte's uptown.
The woman told police she and her children were returning to their SUV on Hearn Place, a short distance from Discovery Place. She said a man armed with a gun ordered them to hand over the keys, and she said the assailant struck her 14-year-old son on the head during the incident.
The man drove off in the Infiniti QX56, headed toward North Graham Street, police say. The man left his weapon behind, and police say the gun was a fake.
The teen's injuries were not serious, police say. The family had traveled from Easley, S.C., near Greenville, to visit Discovery Place. Police did not release a description of the assailant, or the license tag number of the vehicle.
