Woman carjacked and robbed on Bailey Avenue

Northeast District police are investigating a robbery and carjacking that occurred at about 8:30 p.m. Sunday in the city’s Bailey-East Amherst area.

A man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and light blue pants approached a woman as she was getting into her vehicle at Bailey and Hewitt avenues. He then held an object to her back, leading her to believe it was a gun, and demanded her cash and valuables, according to the police report.

After the woman handed over her cash and keys, the robber stole her car, heading south on Bailey toward Kensington Avenue, police said.
