California Carjacker Thwarted Because He Can't Drive a Stick

By    |   Tuesday, 17 Feb 2015 10:57 AM

A California carjacker was thwarted by a stick shift early Sunday morning, and forced to abandon his stolen car after taking it at gunpoint.

The Contra Costa Times reported that the male owner of the vehicle opened the door to find a man with a handgun seated in the car. The jacker demanded he be taken to a nearby location, but then apparently decided he'd rather demand his victim's money and keys.

After forcing the owner out of the car, the assailant tried to drive away, but couldn't figure out the manual transmission.

He then abandoned the car and fled on foot.

Concord police Lt. Tim Runyon said that the suspect is roughly 25 years old, 5'8", 160 pounds, and sports a pencil thin moustache. At the time of the indent he was wearing a black hat, a baggy white T-shirt, a black sweater, and jeans.
