Police released surveillance images and video Tuesday in an effort to identify an armed suspect who carjacked a man and shot in his direction last week in Logan.

The incident happened at around 5:10 a.m. Tuesday, May 7, on the 1300 block of Lindley Avenue, according to authorities.

The victim said he was behind the wheel of his Ford Fusion when a man opened the car door, got in, and ordered him to drive, police said. After traveling a short distance, the suspect told the man to get out of the car, according to investigators.

Authorities said that, as the victim was fleeing, the gunman fired a shot toward him. No one was struck by the bullet, the PPD said.

Using footage from city-owned and local business cameras, detectives determined that the suspect was dropped off in the area by someone driving a silver Ford Taurus with tinted windows.

Minutes after the carjacking, both vehicles – the Taurus and Fusion – were spotted on the 4500 block of N. 11th Street, police said. The suspect left the victim’s car on the block for several hours before returning at around 10:30 a.m. May 7, when both vehicles were seen leaving the area, according to investigators.

The PPD described the robbery suspect as a man who appeared to be in his 20s and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the words “TRUSTNO.1” on the back and front. Police said the victim’s car is a dark gray 2014 Ford Fusion with Pennsylvania license plate number LST7771.

Anyone with information about the carjacking is asked to contact the PPD’s Northwest Detective Division at 215-686-3353/3354; call or text 215-686-TIPS (8477); or go to phillypolice.com/forms/submit-a-tip.
