Police seek suspects in Pleasant Hill carjacking

PLEASANT HILL (BCN) - A 56-year-old woman was the victim of a carjacking Wednesday night outside of a Pleasant Hill sporting goods store, police said.

Police responded at about 8:10 p.m. to the parking lot of Dick's Sporting Goods at 2314 Monument Blvd. on a report of the carjacking, according to police.

The suspects took her car keys from her pocket and drove away in her car. Officers saw the vehicle in Oakland at about 10 p.m. and pursued it, police said.

The suspects ran after abandoning the vehicle on Creekside Circle, off 105th Avenue near Interstate Highway 880 in Oakland.

A police search for the suspects was unsuccessful.
