Woman carjacked in Atlanta says gas station refused to help her

ATLANTA -- Police are still on the lookout for a stolen vehicle after a victim says she was forced out at gunpoint. To top off an already terrifying moment, the victim told police that when she ran to a nearby gas station for help, the employee refused.

The incident happened in the 2100 block of Peachtree Road NE in Atlanta just after midnight on Oct. 20.

That's where police said a woman was car jacked as she exited her vehicle. The victim said that as she got out of her car, two black males exited a black sedan - with one of them brandishing a handgun.

As the armed suspect held the victim at gunpoint.  Another searched her car and took various items.

Another black male then exited the passenger side front seat of the suspect vehicle and stole it.

The armed suspect then got back in the suspect sedan. The robbing crew soon escaped with the victim's car in tow.

The victim said that she couldn't get inside the apartment complex so immediately fled to a nearby gas station for help.  But she said the gas station attendant refused to help so she came back where a security officer let her in and she was able to call police.

Hours later, the vehicle was recovered from Heritage Station apartments in the 700 block of McDaniel Street SW.

That's where an officer who was already responding to another vehicle involved in a car jacking spotted a vehicle matching the description due to a broken mirror.

Attempts to lift fingerprints were unsuccessful and police are still investigating.
