A woman called police and told them she was carjacked at Taco Bell, 2320 N. Tracy Blvd., by two teenage boys at 9:09 p.m. Thursday, May 17. She said she stopped in the parking lot after getting lost looking for a friend’s house, and a teenage boy started flirting with her. He then pulled out a gun, she said, pointed it at her shoulder and told her to get out of the car. She said she got a cab and went back to where she lives in Alameda and called police a couple of hours later. When police tried to contact her for further information, she said she didn’t have any info on the car or have time to talk to them. She said she would call when she was ready.
