NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Greenwich Village man clearing snow away from his truck Friday morning was carjacked in broad daylight, police announced.
As WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported, the snow had stopped falling and it was dead quiet on Christopher Street when the incident occurred just after 9 a.m. There were much fewer people out than on a normal weekday because of the snow.
According to police, a building superintendent was shoveling snow next to his blue Dodge Ram when a man in his 20s appeared and pulled out a gun. He drove off without firing a shot, police said.
The super had the car running when the suspect approached, police said.
