In the past 24 hours, police say two or more carjackers have been terrorizing victims all over the city.

They’ve also been spotted on surveillance video near an Exxon gas station at Joy Road and Evergreen. 

Police believe they are behind 4 armed carjackings, and a victim fears time could be running out before things turn deadly.

”They put a gun in my face and in my boyfriend’s face and made us give them our Lincoln” says Dachelle Ewing. 

Among the violent carjackings, police say people were victimized on Morang on the east side. Also, on Joy Road, Fullerton and Pinehurst, and Heritage, all on the west side.

Vehicles stolen include two Dodge Chargers, a Pontiac Grand Prix and a Lincoln, while the suspects were originally seen driving an orange Dodge Challenger.

Police are also still working to solve several more carjackings from last week that appear unrelated at this time.

Detroit Police say there’s a $2,000 dollar reward for a carjacking tip that leads to an arrest. They have detectives out combing the streets as we speak.
