A 23-year-old man was arrested on New Year’s Day by Bell Gardens police after allegedly carjacking a car from a Burbank woman and later parking it between two police cars, officials said.
At about 9 a.m. Sunday, a man approached a 52-year-old Burbank woman at a car wash in the 500 block of North Victory Boulevard and demanded the keys to her 2012 blue Dodge Neon, Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn said.
The suspect simulated a weapon of some sort in his jacket pocket, Ryburn said.
“She grabbed her purse, he took the car key and she called police,” Ryburn said. “He takes off, we do an area check and can’t find him.”
