Police are asking for the public’s help identifying robbers who carjacked a pickup driver at gunpoint in southwest Fort Worth on Nov. 22.
Of the three robbers, police have a description of one, a woman who they believe bought gas for the stolen truck after the robbery.
The 21-year-old pickup driver told police that he was sitting in his 2007 GMC Sierra about 6 p.m. Nov. 22 at the Fountain Corner Apartments on 5002 Hildring Drive East when a man got out of what was described as a small black SUV and pointed a gun and told him to get out of the truck, according to the Fort Worth police incident report.
The gunman punched the driver in the face, knocking him to the ground and giving him a bloody nose, the report says. A man and a woman got out of the SUV and into the pickup and drove off.
