TOWSON, MD — Police said someone was carjacked this week in the Idlewylde area.

The victim was held at gunpoint as two strangers stole the vehicle in the 6500 block of Falkirk Road.

The carjacking happened around 1:15 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 10, police said.

Recently, the Baltimore Police Department shared tips to avoid becoming a victim of carjacking. Authorities advised keeping windows up and doors locked while inside the vehicle. Park in well-lit places, and be vigilant of surroundings. 

If someone does try to carjack you, police said to avoid physical and verbal confrontation.

“Make a mental note of the suspects and their vehicles,” police said in a statement. “If a carjacker accosts you, give up your car and leave the scene.”

These are carjacking hot spots, according to police: streets with low lighting, residential driveways, gas stations, ATMs, parking lots and garages.
