Details

At 8:49 PM MPD officers were dispatched to a carjacking in a parking lot in the 400 block of S. High Point Rd. on Madison's west side.  While the 60 year old male victim was sitting in his vehicle he was approached by a total of four teenaged males.  One of those males threatened the man with a knife and then stole his car.  The victim in this incident was unharmed and his vehicle was located unoccupied a few blocks away.  A Madison police K9 unit attempted to track the suspects but no suspects were located. 

It's strongly believed that this incident is related to another attempted carjacking that took place roughly nine minutes earlier at the KFC located in the 7500 block of Mineral Point Rd.  In that incident two teenaged male suspects displayed a knife to a man in a vehicle while he was waiting in the drive through.  The potential victim in that incident remained in his vehicle, was unharmed, and the suspects fled the area.
