There was a carjacking in Flatbush on Sunday morning. Video of the incident along with fake news regarding the incident has gone viral on social media.
YWN has confirmed the following information with NYPD sources.
Early Sunday morning, a group of males stole a Honda Accord in the Bronx. The vehicle was driven to Manhattan, where the men conducted a robbery. Following the robbery, they drove into Brooklyn, where the vehicle crashed into multiple parked cars at 2722 Ford Street. The occupants fled the scene and ran to Avenue R and East 29th Street, where they saw a person entering a vehicle at around 11:00AM. They grabbed the keys and took off. No weapons were displayed.
Police tell YWN that they believe the carjacked vehicle was driven to the Bronx.
In the attached video, the viewer can see the group of carjackers take the vehicle and drive away, leaving the car-owner standing in the middle of the street stunned.
