WARWICK, RI — Warwick Police have shared photos of a suspect they’re seeking in an Oct. 30 carjacking of a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe stolen at knifepoint from the Joann Stores lot at 1500 Bald Hill Road.
Police report that at 9:05 a.m. that day, a 63-year-old woman reported her gray 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, with plate reading XR-103 was stolen at knife point in the lot.
The woman described the suspect as a white man with glasses, grayish brown hair, in his 20s-40s, thin build, about 5’3”-5’9” tall, wearing a dark jacket, black/grey hat, blue jeans, and black sneakers. He was wearing a black bulky backpack that was covered by a trash bag. The man also struck a witness in the parking lot with the stolen vehicle prior to fleeing onto Bald Hill Road.
The same male suspect is believed to have been involved in a similar incident on Oct. 29, wearing a different pair of shoes.
