Vehicle with Keyless Entry System Carjacked From Man at Parkside Gas Station

A man carjacked another man’s car at a gas station early this morning in San Francisco’s Parkside neighborhood, police said.

The carjacking was reported at about 4:10 a.m. at a Shell gas station located at the intersection of 19th Avenue and Taraval Street, police said.

The manager of the Shell gas station, Yovan Argueta, said the employee working in the gas station at the time didn’t witness the incident, but said he is in the process of reviewing the gas station’s surveillance footage.

The victim, a 42-year-old man, told police he had gone to the gas station to make a purchase. He returned to his car, described as a 2013 Honda Accord equipped with a keyless entry system, and the doors automatically unlocked as he neared.

He said the suspect, described as a man in his 30s, approached him from behind, jumped in the car and drove away.

Police said neither the suspect nor the car had been located as of this morning.
