NORTH MIAMI BEACH (CBS4) – A man was carjacked at gunpoint from a North Miami Beach bank’s parking lot late Wednesday morning.
According to police, just after 10:30 a.m. the man had parked his green 2003 Lincoln Town Car in the west parking lot of the Bank of America branch at 1199 NE 163rd Street. As he got out of his vehicle with bank bag in hand to make a deposit, he was approached by a gun wielding man who forced him back into the car. The armed man then got in the driver’s seat and drove away from the bank.
The man said after the gunman took the bank bag, which contained a large amount of cash, he realized he had to do something. As the car headed south of NW 12th Avenue, the victim said he lunged toward the door, jumped out and then made his way back to the bank where he called police.
Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the man’s green Town Car with the license plate AKN P89.
Anyone who spots the vehicle is asked to called police immediately. Anyone with information concerning the carjacking is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
