One Person In Custody In Attempted Car-Jacking

A 28-year old man is in custody and is expected to appear in court the week of July-19/2021 to face charges in relation to an attempted car-jacking on the west side of Saint John.                                  

On June-29-2021 around 1:30pm, an elderly woman said as she was parking and exiting her vehicle, when a man with a weapon, leaned into her vehicle and attempted to take possession of it.

The woman refused and made her way into a nearby store where she alerted security and officers arrived on scene. Other than being shaken up, the woman was fine and suffered no injuries.

The Saint John Police Force would like to thank the public for all of the tips received in relation to this investigation. Your information has made a difference.
