A 14-year-old boy who took his father’s car for a late-night joy ride with friends was carjacked at gunpoint in south Minneapolis this week, said police, who are searching for three suspects.
The teen told police it happened after 2:10 a.m. Wednesday near 28th Street and Pillsbury Avenue S. The specifics of what happened weren’t disclosed on Friday, but the victim reported that he had been riding in his father’s car with three juvenile friends when they were carjacked, according to a police account of the incident.
Police spokesman John Elder said that little information was available about the three suspects — two men and a woman — who piled into the car and left in an unknown direction.
The boy was cited for violating curfew. A message left for his 53-year-old father, who lives in New Hope, wasn’t immediately returned on Friday afternoon.
