Police are investigating an armed carjacking reported on Pinehurst Road in Canyon, south of Moraga, after a local man reported being followed into Canyon by another vehicle and ordered out of his car at the point of a shotgun.
The incident was reported at approximately 1:30 p.m. when the victim contacted East Bay Regional Park personnel to report the theft of his 2014 BMW. Initial reports were that the victim was followed by as many as three men in a black Audi SUV, which pulled in front of his car on Pinehurst Road – one of the occupants brandishing the shotgun and demanding the victim’s car.
Both vehicles, BMW and Audi, were last seen being driven out of Canyon toward Oakland.
The victim was not believed to have been physically harmed during the encounter.
