SAN DIEGO — Police Tuesday were searching for two men who carjacked a man at gunpoint in the parking lot of the Mission Valley mall.

It happened around 7:35 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of the Nordstrom Rack at 1640 Camino Del Rio North, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

A man, whose age was not immediately available, was sitting in his blue 2007 Hyundai Sonata — with California license plate 5XXK569 — when two men approached the driver’s side of his car, Buttle said.

One of the men pulled out a black semi-automatic handgun and pointed it at the victim, demanding he give up his car, the officer said.

The victim got out of the car and both men got in, then one of the men noticed the man’s cell phone in the vehicle and demanded the passcode before the pair fled eastbound on Camino De La Reina in the Hyundai, Buttle said.

No detailed descriptions of the robbers were immediately available.

Robbery detectives were investigating the theft.
