AUTHORITIES SEEKING BLUE MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE STOLEN IN I-4 CARJACKING; MAY BE CARRYING INJURED FEMALE
Law enforcement officers in Central Florida are looking for a dark blue Ford Mustang convertible that was stolen this morning during a carjacking along I-4 near Daytona Beach, with the suspects loading an apparently injured female into the car before taking off headed west.
The incident was called in from the 128 mile marker of westbound I-4 at 5:40 a.m. The victim, a 34-year-old woman, had driven up on the scene of a crash and stopped to assist those involved. When she did, three young men jumped out of a car that was involved in the crash and stole hers.
Those three suspects also loaded an unresponsive female into the victim’s car before driving away westbound.
The Mustang is a 2012 convertible with Florida tag V83-4QC. It has a black vinyl top, a spoiler and no window tint.
The suspects were described as three black males in their teens or early 20s. One was heavy-set wearing a striped shirt and jeans. Two others were described as thin. The unresponsive female was also believed to be in her teens or early 20s, with short dreadlocks, a red hooded sweatshirt, brown jeans and black shoes. She was bleeding from the head.
The car they left behind at the scene had also been reported stolen.
The suspects are wanted by the Sheriff’s Office on carjacking charges; the Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the initial crash.
Anyone who spots the vehicle or suspects involved is asked to call 911 without approaching the suspects.
