The armed carjacking was reported at the 7-Eleven gas station located in the 1700 block of East Dyer Road, near the SR-55 Freeway, just before 11:30 PM.

When officers arrived on scene they learned a male and female couple had parked their grey Lexus in front of the gas station. The male driver entered the store while his female passenger remained in the vehicle.
