The Incident

On Monday, January 8 at approximately 6:00 p.m., Worcester Police responded to Upland Gardens Drive for a reported carjacking. Upon the officers arrival, they met with the 40-year-old female victim. According to the victim, she was entering her 2013 Toyota when she was approached by a man holding a gun. The man ordered her out the car.
