carjacking stick shift

Authorities in Nevada are asking for the public’s help identifying a man who attempted an unsuccessful carjacking in Las Vegas last month.

A video released Wednesday by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police shows the failed attempt and images of the suspect, who is described as a Hispanic man in his 30s who stands about 5-foot-11.

The crime occurred on April 13, around 7 p.m. in the back portion of a business parking lot on West Desert Inn Road.

The unidentified victim was sitting in her vehicle with the windows up and the doors closed when the suspect approached the car, opened the door, and physically dragged the woman out of the vehicle.

The suspect then got into the car to drive away, but apparently was never taught the fine art of driving a stick shift. Seconds later, the sad suspect disappointingly walked away.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or crimestoppersofnv.com. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
