DENVER, Colo. -- Police across Colorado investigated multiple carjackings during the month of July.
Just looking back at our Denver7 reports we count at least seven carjackings.
One was reported in Colorado Springs on July 7. The suspect faced one big problem in that case. Police said Andrew Lazcano, 35, did not know how to drive the truck he tried to steal because it was a stick shift. Lazcano was arrested.
On July 13, Two suspects went on a carjacking spree in Commerce City. Police said the suspects carjacked a family at gunpoint in a Dollar General parking lot on East 74th Avenue near Colorado Highway 2. Those suspects are also accused of trying to carjack a second person after ditching the first stolen car, but were unsuccessful. Police say they then stole a car from a third person. They were never caught.
That brings us to the weekend of July 30 and July 31, where three carjackings occurred in the Denver metro-area.
Two women in Littleton had their vehicles stolen at gunpoint. The first carjacking happened around 12:20 p.m. Saturday on West Mineral Avenue near South Utica Drive. Sunday afternoon around 2:30 p.m. a woman sitting in her car at the Littleton Museum was carjacked. Police said that victim was struck by the suspect.
In both cases, the victims gave police a similar description of the suspect. He has not been caught.
