Police: Two arrested, two at large after Lyft driver carjacked

- Atlanta Police are looking for two suspects after a Lyft driver was carjacked Thursday morning.

"Around 1:30 a.m., the Lyft driver was taking his female rider home to an apartment complex off Glenwood Avenue," Atlanta Police Captain Andrew Senzer said.

Officer said the driver wanted to make sure the rider got home safely, so he walked her to her door.

"It's unfortunate that this driver was going out of his way to make sure the woman got inside when this incident occurred," Atlanta Police Captain Andrew Senzer said.

Police said as the driver was walking back to his car, four men approached him, one of which was pointing a gun at the driver.

"They demanded his keys and wallet then took off with his car," Atlanta Police Captain Andrew Senzer said. "The driver gave us a description of the vehicle and the suspects and we spotted them shortly after."

Atlanta Police said they were traveling southbound on Moreland Avenue when they discovered the stolen vehicle, a 2013 Toyota Corolla. 

"We followed it to the Thomasville apartment complex and that's when we arrested two people," Atlanta Police Captain Andrew Senzer said.

No one was injured during the incident.

"Fortunately no one was injured and the driver got his car back," Atlanta Police Captain Andrew Senzer said. "Outstanding job by APD and we got a few criminals off the streets."

Two suspects remain at large.
