Police are investigating a carjacking reported in the Edgewater neighborhood on Monday afternoon. No one is in custody and the victim was not injured.

A 30-year-old woman told police that she parked her car on the 5900 block of North Kenmore and a man approached her as she stepped out of the vehicle around 4:30 p.m. The offender implied that he had a gun and demanded the victim’s property, including her car, the woman said.

After getting the victim’s valuables, the man climbed into her red four-door Prius and drove away northbound on Kenmore, according to a police spokesman.

The stolen car has black rims, a Batman sticker on its back bumper, and stickers for the Georgia State Panthers and Oregon State Beavers on the rear passenger window. It bears a Georgia specialty license plate that features a bald eagle.

Police did not have a description of the offender available. Area North detectives are investigating.
