Duncanville Police Search for Carjacking Suspects

Filed under: City |

Just before 11AM this morning, Duncanville Police responded to a call of a carjacking in the 100 block of W. Danieldale Road at Main Street.

The victim, an 86-year-old man told police that a black male approached him and demanded his wallet. When the man refused, the suspect displayed a handgun that he had in a case.

While the man struggled with the suspect, another man got into the victim’s car and drove away. The first suspect then fled in a tan, 4-door Saturn.

While officers were checking the area, they saw the victim’s car at Wheatland Road and Westmoreland Road and began following the car waiting on additional officers to arrive. When police tried to stop the vehicle, the suspect sped away. As the suspect was fleeing, he lost control of the car and wrecked.

After wrecking the suspect fled on foot and jumped a fence into a Dallas neighborhood and into a wooded area.

Officers searched the area, with the assistance of Dallas Police Department officers, K-9 units, and helicopter, but were unable to locate the suspects.

Duncanville police stress that struggling with an armed robber is not recommended.

“We do not recommend fighting or wrestling with robbery suspects that display weapons, no material thing is worth you getting hurt or killed,” said Duncanville Police Officer Doug Sisk.   “Your wallet, credit cards, and even your car can be replaced your life can’t.”

If you have any information regarding the robbery please contact the Duncanville Police Department.
