Police are searching for four suspects who allegedly carjacked a man at gunpoint in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City early Friday.
The victim, 48, was sitting in his parked Toyota RAV 4 — a crossover SUV — at the intersection of 40th Avenue and 24th Street at around 5 a.m. when the group approached him, according to police.
One of the suspects displayed a gun before the group ordered the man out of the vehicle and demanded his keys, police said.
The victim got out of the RAV 4 and the assailants then stole his vehicle. The suspects fled westbound on 40th Avenue in the RAV 4, police said.
The man’s backpack and wallet were inside the stolen vehicle. The victim was not injured.
There have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
Fun fact – The building on the NW corner of that intersection is in the music video for Nookie by Limp Bizkit (skip to 1:43). Go and check it out*
*Watching the Nookie video is definitely a better use of your time than reading whatever word-salad comments MRLIC is gonna post about this article.
