State Police Investigating Carjacking in Haddam

Police urge anyone who sees the car to call police but not approach the car or driver.

State police are investigating a carjacking in Haddam and they are looking for a gray 2014 Hyundai Tucson.

Officials said a resident of Killingworth Road in the Higganum section of Haddam called 911 around 12 p.m. after she confronted a man who was in the process of stealing her vehicle out of her open garage. The woman found the suspect in the driver's seat of her gray 2014 Hyundai Tucson with a Connecticut license place of 1AGKK3.

The woman opened the vehicle's driver door during the confrontation, but the suspect backed out of her driveway and caused her to fall. The suspect then drove north on Killingworth Road, state police added.

The suspect can be seen on local business surveillance video walking southbound in the direction of the woman's house prior to the incident, authorities said.

The male suspect is described as a white man who is approximately 30-40 years old with a medium build. He is approximately 5'10" and has brown hair and a possible goatee. He was wearing sunglasses, a light-colored ball cap, dark-colored knee length shorts, dark high-top footwear and was carrying a dark-colored backpack or bag, according to state police. 

The woman refused medical treatment at the scene. 

The vehicle has minor driver-side door damage, police added.

Police are canvassing the area and they ask anyone who sees the vehicle not approach it. They urge people to avoid contact with the driver and call state police at Troop F in Westbrook at 860-399-2100.
