CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police are searching for a man who carjacked a man on Graham Street in North Charlotte Thursday afternoon. Eyewitness News obtained surveillance video that shows one man force another out of his car at gunpoint in broad daylight.
“No one should have to go through that ever,” Daniel Kim said.
Kim works in the Graham Point Shopping Center and showed Channel 9 his surveillance video. The man walked into his store before he went down the block and sat on the ground for a several minutes.
At one point, Kim walked right by him.
“(He) just walked right past him. He was standing in front of the guy he carjacked,” Kim said.
Kim felt the man was up to no good but it was just a feeling.
“We made eye contact,” Kim said. “He just gave off a bad vibe.”
But after Kim went back inside, the criminal targeted a man in a green Toyota Camry. The video shows him force the man out of his car. Police say he pointed a gun at that victim.
Shoppers who showed up minutes after the carjacking felt lucky it wasn't them.
“This just blows my mind,” Mary Wylie said. “Thank you Jesus we (weren’t) there at that time.”
