A 26-year-old Glen Burnie woman was the victim of a carjacking early yesterday in the parking lot of the 24-hour Giant supermarket at 7940 Crain Highway South in Glen Burnie.

Jennifer Wolfe, 26, was waiting for her boyfriend before 3 a.m. when she was approached by a man and a woman asking her for directions, Anne Arundel County police said.

Sgt. Joe Jordan said the pair opened her car door and the man put a gun to Wolfe's head, forcing her to drive them to the Brooklyn Homes area off of 10th Street near Jack and Stoll streets. Wolfe appeared not to be injured, police said.

After getting out of the car, the female carjacker, wearing a red shirt, snatched a heart-shaped charm necklace and $50 from Wolfe, while the man grabbed her black and gold cowboy hat and began jumping and yelling, Jordan said.

Wolfe sped back to Giant to look for her boyfriend, Roger Blubaugh, 46, who had started walking home. They called police, who went to the spot where the carjackers had gotten out of the car but could not find them.

Wolfe did not appear to be injured, police said.

Last year, 23 carjackings were reported in Anne Arundel County. As of May 31 this year, six had been reported.
