Carjacking Suspects Caught on Surveillance Footage

SAN JOSE — The San Jose Police Department’s Robbery Unit is asking for the public’s help identifying and locating a male and female carjacking suspect.

According to Officer Albert Morales with the San Jose Police Department, “On July 18, 2016 at approximately 6:25 A.M., a stolen vehicle and assault with a deadly weapon (vehicle) occurred at 940 Deer Meadow Court in San Jose.”

The victim had left her vehicle unattended in the driveway while warming it up.  Just as she was ready to drive, the victim watched as one of the suspects was seen driving away in her vehicle. Realizing that someone was stealing her car, she tried to stop the driver by standing in front of him.  However, the driver failed to yield and struck the victim.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where she was treated for her injuries.

The San Jose Police Department released a video that shows the carjacking suspects just before finding the idling vehicle.  Video surveillance shows a male driver in a grey colored Lexus Sedan dropping off a female suspect.

According to Morales, “Footage showed the vehicle park in a stall and female driver exit, along with a male passenger wearing a red shirt.”

Before the carjacking, both suspects were seen trying to open several different vehicles in the area prior to driving away with the female victim’s car. “The two individuals in the video are considered accomplices to the carjacking,” Morales stated.  Police are describing the male suspect as a Hispanic adult male.

Anyone with information regarding this incident are urged to contact Detective Hernandez #3690 of the San Jose Police Department’s Robbery Unit at (408) 277-4166.
