A woman had her vehicle stolen after three men held her at gunpoint outside of a Walmart in Glendale Wednesday evening.
At about 7:40 p.m., the woman was putting groceries into her car in the parking lot of a Walmart Supercenter near 5600 W. Northern Ave. After returning the shopping cart to the rack in the parking lot, she was walking back to her vehicle when a man approached her with a handgun and demanded her vehicle, a Glendale Police spokesperson stated.
The woman believed the suspect was holding a toy gun and thought it was a joke. However, two more men approached and told her to give up her car keys. She gave the suspects the keys and they fled in her vehicle.
Glendale Police described the vehicle as an orange 2007 Dodge four-door, but are unsure as to the car’s model. The license plate was not released to protect the identity of the victim.
This investigation is ongoing at this time.
The police advise the public to not actively search for the vehicle as it was taken at gunpoint. However, if you happen to see a vehicle matching the description, dial 911.
