By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee October 26, 2010

Seattle police are looking for an armed robber who carjacked a man at gunpoint near Kinnear Park last Thursday.

On the morning of October 21st, the victim was sitting in a parking lot on Elliot Ave waiting until after 9:00 am when he could legally park on the street.

A man walked up to the passenger side of the victim's vehicle, and asked for a piece of paper to write an address on.

As the victim opened his door so he could get to a paper and pen, the suspect came up to the victim's door, carrying a chrome handgun, with his shirt pulled up over his face,

The suspect—described as a Hispanic male, mid-20s, 5'8, 215 pounds—then told the man to get out of the car or he would shoot him.

When the victim got out of the car, the suspect hopped inside and drove off.

Police searched the area, but weren't able to find the suspect or the vehicle.
