Arvada man carjacked in his driveway | News
ARVADA, Colo. -- Arvada police are looking for two armed suspects who carjacked a man and attacked him with a hammer in his own driveway.
The incident happened shortly after 6:00 a.m. in the 6300 block of Xavier Ct.
Investigators say the victim was getting ready to pull out of his driveway to go to work at 6 a.m. Thursday when the two suspects pulled up in a dark colored Jeep Cherokee and blocked him in.
That’s when the suspects, armed with a hammer and a handgun jumped out of their vehicle and stole the man’s wallet before hitting him with the hammer and taking off in his Toyota Tundra.
Police say one suspect drove the Jeep, while the other drove the stolen truck.
The driver of the truck abandoned the vehicle after it got stuck on a patch of ice less than a block from the victim’s home.
Police say it appears to be a random attack.
The victim's son told FOX31 NEWS his father was not seriously injured in the attack, and that they aren’t ready to talk about the crime.
But neighbors are speaking out, wondering if they should be taking precautions in their own driveway.
“It makes me a little on edge to think that if I'm leaving the house early in the morning, than maybe I should be a little more wary of what's going on," said Jessica Vaughn.
Arvada Police are looking for the dark colored Jeep Cherokee and for the two suspects, described only as Hispanic men in their early 20’s. Both were wearing sweatshirts.
If you have any information you are asked to call the Arvada Police Department at 720-898-6900.
