GLENDALE — A 23-year-old man was arrested early Saturday after he and two other men tried to carjack two motorists in Glendale and La Crescenta in the same night, police said.
The man, whose name wasn't immediately released, and his accomplices allegedly approached a motorist early Saturday at Foothill Boulevard and Angeles Forest Highway in attempt to steal the car, said Sgt. Gary Ogurek of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station. The motorist may have seen a gun, he said.
Fearing that the trio would become violent, the motorist immediately drove through a red light and fled, he said.
That didn't stop the trio, who then tried to carjack another motorist in Glendale, police said.
The motorist was stopped just after 1:30 a.m. Saturday at a red light at Verdugo Boulevard and the Glendale (2) Freeway off ramp when the trio walked up to the vehicle and brandished a handgun, Glendale police officials said.
