Law enforcement officials are seeking information that may lead to the arrest of a suspect in a carjacking in Maricopa Tuesday night.

Maricopa Police Department spokesperson Ricardo Alvarado said the incident took place near the Tacos ‘N’ More on John Wayne Parkway.

According to the report, a woman was sitting in her car near the restaurant around 7:30 p.m. when the suspect approached wearing a Halloween mask and brandishing a handgun.

The suspect, who the woman believed to be male, then demanded her vehicle and forced her from it, Alvarado said. No injuries were reported.

The car, a gray 2016 Kia sport utility vehicle, was last seen heading north on State Route 347 and has not been located since. Investigators are following all possible leads, including surveillance footage from surrounding businesses, Alvarado said.

MPD asks anyone with information on the whereabouts of the suspect or the vehicle to contact them on their non-emergency line at 520-568-3673, or to use the MPD smartphone app or website to file an anonymous tip.
