Oakland police issue warning after carjacking

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities warned the public on Tuesday to stay away from a carjacked vehicle that was being driven by one victim and carrying a teenage girl.

Oakland police said the carjacking occurred outside a grocery store.

Witnesses said someone with a knife forced the occupant _ an older man _ to drive away with the teenager in the rear seat.

“We don't want anyone approaching this vehicle,” Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson told KTVU-TV at the scene. “We have information that the suspect is armed with a knife.”

Watson said the girl was believed to be 13. An Amber Alert was issued.

Police Tuesday night asked people to be on the lookout for a red sedan, and not a red 2001 Infiniti SUV as they originally reported. The vehicle's California license plate number is 6JFM648.
