Carjacking suspect arrested after SF officers use cellphone to find car

A 25-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly stealing a car from a man at gunpoint Friday evening on the west end of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.

Around 5 p.m., officers responded to a report of a carjacking near John F. Kennedy Drive and Great Highway, police said.

After a preliminary investigation, officers learned a female suspect had approached a man while he was in his parked vehicle, a 2015 Toyota Prius, according to police.

The suspect demanded the man hand over the keys to his car. When he refused, the woman brandished a handgun, police said.

The victim then gave the woman his keys and she fled in the vehicle, according to police.

Because the victim had left his cellphone in the car, officers were able to use the phone's tracking device to locate the vehicle as well as the suspect, according to police.

The car was eventually recovered and the suspect was arrested, police said. Her name was not immediately being released.
