(La Porte County, IN) - La Porte County Police are investigating a reported carjacking attempt.
A 23-year old man told officers he was traveling U.S. 35 near Kingsford Heights early Saturday
when he spotted two men walking on the shoulder in the bitter cold. One of the men ventured onto the highway waving his arms at the driver.
Police said the driver stopped and began stepping out when he heard what sounded like a gun
being cocked. The driver said the man walking toward him instructed him to “get out,” according to police. Police said the driver got back into his vehicle and fled.
The suspect was described as having a “baby face” and wore a gray sweatshirt.
