The carjacking at West San Ysidro Boulevard and Sunset Lane was reported at 11:52 p.m. Wednesday, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.

The victim had just parked his 1993 Nissan Maxima on the street when a man walked up and threatened him with a knife, telling the victim he was being “jacked,” the officer said in a statement. The carjacker then drove away in the Maxima.

The victim was not hurt, Stafford said.

Police were looking for a Hispanic man in his 20s, around 5 feet 6, with a goatee, driving a white 1993 Nissan Maxima, California license plate No. 4TZB181. He wore a black hat and gray sweater, Stafford said.

    I wonder if the ‘victims’ description of the ‘suspect’ is very similar to his own …

    Even though the description is generic, at least they got a plate number! This story doesn't surprise me. I believe they understate the amount of criminal activity along the border for political reasons. I turns these bail bonds down all the time. Thanks Steve

      "…at least they got a plate number!"

      Well considering that it's the license plate of the car belonging to the owner who got jacked, I would hope they'd have a license plate number.

      Even though they got the plate #, the carjacker probably wasn't taking it for his own use, and being so close to the border, it's probably in pieces very far from each other.
