Boulder Police Release Composite of Armed Carjacking Suspect

Boulder police release composite of armed carjacking suspect

Boulder police are investigating a carjacking that occurred shortly before noon, on October 10, at Twenty Ninth Street, located at 1710 29th St.

Right after the victim pulled into a parking spot a man approached her and tapped on her window. Unable to hear what the man was saying the victim rolled her window down. The suspect then pointed a gun at the victim and told her to get out of her car. When the victim exited her vehicle, the suspect jumped in and drove off.

Deputies with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office observed the suspect vehicle near 3rd Avenue and Hover Street in Longmont. Deputies attempted to pull over the suspect, but he eluded them. He drove a short distance and crashed into another vehicle near 9th Avenue and Hover Street. The suspect took off on foot. The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Longmont police and Boulder police searched the area where the suspect was last seen and conducted an aerial search using a drone.

The suspect is described as a thin Hispanic man, in his late 20’s, 5-feet 10-inches tall with a slim athletic build and small amount of facial hair described as a 5 o’clock shadow. He was last seen wearing a black down jacket with a gray hoodie underneath and dark jeans. A composite sketch of the suspect is attached.

Longmont High School was temporarily placed in lockout, out of caution, due to its proximity to where the suspect was last seen after he fled on foot.

The driver of the other vehicle was seen by medical personnel on scene but was cleared without any injuries. The crash that occurred at 9th and Hover will be investigated by Longmont police.
