On April 30th, a man walked into the Gap store in the Florida Mall and tried to threaten the employees with a weapon. The attempted robbery was foiled when the man was unable to draw the weapon from his fanny pack, and a security guard intervened. The suspect then ran into the parking lot where he forced a driver and one of her two passengers out of an SUV.
An Orange County Sheriff’s deputy was responding to the shoplifting call when he saw the suspect carjack the green SUV. The deputy pursued the suspect until the carjacker caused a three vehicle pile-up on Orange Blossom Trail near Lancaster. Four people, one of whom was a bystander trapped in the SUV with the suspect, were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No deputies were injured, but the carjacker managed to escape on foot after the crash.
