NYPD searching for Maserati carjackers
NEW YORK - The NYPD wants to find two suspects who carjacked the driver of a Maserati at gunpoint in the Hell's Kitchen section of Manhattan.
The robbers approached a 56-year-old man sitting behind the wheel of the luxury vehicle at West 53rd Street and 10th Avenue at about 7 p.m. on Wednesday when one of them pulled a gun on the driver, police said.
The man got out of the car and the suspects took off in the 2017 vehicle before dumping it in Newark, New Jersey.
