The carjacking was reported at about 2:30 a.m. near the intersection of First and Howard streets.

The suspect entered the victim’s car, an Acura TL, and told the 26-year-old driver and his male passenger that he had a gun, according to police.

The victims drove the suspect around until he took out the gun and demanded money.

The victims then exited the car and flagged down officers as the suspect fled in the vehicle, police said.

The suspect was later arrested. Police have not released his name.

The victims were uninjured during the carjacking.
