Bridgeport Police are investigating a carjacking and they are asking to identify a suspect.
A man flagged down a Bridgeport police officer around 3 p.m. on Aug. 21 and said he was the victim of a carjacking and the robber held him up at gunpoint.
He said he was out his wife’s car on Wood Avenue and Olive Street when another car pulled up, parked ahead of him and a man the victim knows as “Boobie,” jumped out of the car and asked about money the victim might owe him, police said.
When the victim responded that he did not owe the other man any money, “Boobie” pulled a handgun from his waistband, so the victim punched him and ran around the corner, police said.
“Boobie” chased after the victim, fired his gun twice near the corner of Wood Avenue and Olive Street and took off in the victim’s wife’s Pontiac four-door sedan, police said.
“Boobie” was wearing a white shirt and black shorts, police said.
Anyone with information about the carjacking should call the Bridgeport Detective Bureau at (203) 581-5201.
