Odenton man victim of carjacking after giving 2 men a ride

An Odenton man was the victim of a carjacking early yesterday after he gave a ride to two men who signaled that they needed assistance on Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

The man stopped his maroon Chevrolet Trailblazer about 5:30 a.m. to help two men who were "waving their hands for a ride," according to a news release issued yesterday.

He agreed to give them a lift, and the two men got into his truck. A short time later, one of the men brandished a handgun and told the driver to get out of his vehicle, the report said.

The men took off in the truck and the victim walked to a nearby gas station on Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, police said.

Lt. Joseph E. Jordan, a county police spokesman, could not be reached for comment yesterday.
